New York – how do I explain it to someone who’s never been before. Big, yes. Noisy, yes. Crowded, yes. Expensive, Hell Yes! It’s almost as if someone from every country on Earth has been pushed into this small island (Manhattan) and they’re all in Times Square at the same time!
Did I like it? Yes and no. Parts of it were fantastic, parts of it not so much. I didn’t like Times Square at all but I loved some of the other areas.
Anyway what to blog about from my time there…. it’s got to be people. I took SO many photographs of characters walking along the streets, from a naked Wonderwoman (body-painted) to a man in a bright yellow zoot-suit, but unfortunately I haven’t had time to process the shots yet.
So here is one of the few shots I’ve uploaded from my camera. Hopefully next week I’ll get a chance to check out the street-life shots.
“In New York
Concrete jungle where dreams are made of
There’s nothing you can’t do
Now you’re in New York
These streets will make you feel brand new
Big lights will inspire you
Hear it from New York! New York! New York!”
