Another year, another trip to New York City! I got to visit a few new parts of the city, including the Upper West Side and Brooklyn, and focused on non-touristy subjects. The colors, textures, and scenes you can find are amazing. Enjoy…
Ah, the City That Never Sleeps. They weren’t kidding when they gave New York City that nickname! Anytime you want anything, you’re pretty much guaranteed to find it if you’re willing to look. Stamps at 10pm? No problem. Hamburger at 6am? No problem. Grasshopper tacos before a Broadway show? NO PROBLEM! (Yes, I ate grasshopper tacos before seeing The Book of Mormon. Want to try the best grasshopper tacos, accompanied by the best guacamole, washed down with the best tequila? Go to Toloache!)
The only other thing I want to say about NYC is about its people. I think they get a bad rap sometimes for appearing to be rude or uncaring. It’s not that they’re rude OR uncaring, there’s just a lot of people in NYC, which means there are a LOT of weirdos. What better way to screen people than to appear uninterested? Once you get past that defense mechanism, NYC’ers are the best. Yeah, there’s a different timing there, mostly rushed, but… it’s all worth it. I thoroughly enjoy New York City and its people every time I go.
Last thing – all of these photos were taken with a point-and-shoot Panasonic DMC-TS2 ruggedized camera. It’s awesome.
