Noo Yoik

Last set of uploads from New York (I promise!) even though I have hundreds more. I don’t want to be boring. Plus I have another big trip planned in a couple of weeks…. ssshhhh, it’s a secret!

New York 56
The Flat Iron Building

I would have loved to have been a couple of feet to the left but that would have meant hovering hundreds of feet up in the air off the side of the Empire State Building, and even though I have MANY special powers hovering in mid-air isn’t one of them (unfortunately)!

*edited – left? I mean right of course. I think I have left-right dyslexia. All I ever hear from my family and friends is “NO, your OTHER right!”

New York 64
Bryant Park Coffee Shop

Just sitting watching the world go by. Is there anything more fun than people watching? I think not. Mind you when I people-watch I try to avoid eye-contact, but sometimes the inevitable happens. I think I’m a magnet for weirdos and nutters. I have so many stories about being approached by strangers and the strange things that happen to me…. another time for those stories perhaps.

New York 68
Brooklyn Bridge

Didn’t get to walk across unfortuantely. One of my friends we met up with in New York actually had a broken leg so we tried to make it as easy as possible for her with the amount of walking we did. Mind you I still managed to average 18,000 steps a day! She didn’t do that many steps before I get accused of cruelty to the broken-legged. She taxied a lot of places where I would walk with my other friends. One photograph I would have loved to have taken was of this bridge at night with the skyscrapers in the background but that photo has been done to death anyway, by much better photographers than me.

New York 55
Building advertisments

Not a black and white but I really love old advertising, especially on the side of buildings. I actually have a plan in my head to do a graphic design of all the New York street signs (yep, I took tons of photographs of them too!) and make them into a sort of collage. That project will take me a wee while to complete but until then, goodbye from Noo Yoik!

  1. Great photos, again. Very interesting advertising, direct onto the wall! I’m guessing to bypass planning laws. I’ll await your collage with great interest. (unless I’m one of the nutters you’ve attracted)

  2. Hi Alba! We just stumbled across your blog and wanted to tell you we love the photos from your New York posts! We’re a little biased, we do so love this city, but your character studies are quite compelling. Looking forward to more!
