A few more photographs from New York...

Here are a few more photos from my New York trip. I promise I will write a proper post about the trip soon :)

I loved the sights from the top of the "Rock"IMG_2993

These were two of the cutest little things I have ever seen. They were snuggled up next to me as I sat on the bank under the Brooklyn BridgeSisterly Love

I took hundreds of photographs around Central Park. It was such a magical place on Memorial Day. The weather was amazing and the people were all so friendly and happy.Central Park 1

One of many photos I took in Time Square, this time by day.Time Square by Day 2

The skyscrapers were so impressive, towering above me. I had permanent neck ache from walking around looking at the sky.

The Trump Tower has an amazing waterfall inside. I will reveal it to you in a future post.

If only I had somebody to buy something for..... sigh....Tiffany & Co

Ground Zero..... lest we forget.....Ground Zero

A trip to the museum of natural history. These creatures looked really mean as fossils. I can't even begin to think what they were like alive!Dinosaur

A trip to Wall Street.

Back to Time Square at night. I spent most of my evenings wandering around time square, just people watching and taking in the atmosphere.Time Square by night 3

Walking back to my hotel in the early hours of the morning. The skyscrapers were as impressive by night as they were during the day. This hansom fellow is the Bank of America building...Skyscraper by night

...and this guy is the Empire State building. The very top of the building was literally touching the clouds.

wall street - and no pic with the bulls? lol

I love the nighttime pics, these are all really great to look at...especially for those who have never been to a big city like that you take snippets of everyday life and goings on

I'm staring at the last pic of the empire state building and cannot decide what those statuesque things are on each side that look like they have wings. Birds, gargoyles? hmm

Now outside of pictures did you have any interesting experiences, meeting any interesting people or characters? I'd like to hear all about it!

The pics are stunning. I love the way you captured the city. So vibrant and full of life.

I must confess, the ducks are my favourite xx

Oh wow...your pictures are great...every time I see them I want to go back to NYC! I've been here for a month and I went there twice, lol...something tells me I'll spend lots of time in Manhattan.

Many thanks for the fabulous trip around New York. I have never been there, so I thoroughly enjoyed looking at all your photographs.You captured the height of the buildings very well - I felt quite hemmed in......

Janette, that is really so kind of you to say.

Elise :) They were soooo cute! I could have sat there next to them all day :)

Thrice, I have a funny feeling that you will be visting NYC quite often...lol!

Hey Minz!!!! Thank you :) The tall buildings were quite dominating. I am glad that I managed to catch a little bit of the feeling in the photos.

Awww, thanks Ingrid :D

Great pics as always G-man! My gal has been there and says that she has taken "scaringly" similar pictures to yours from the place.

Plus, she commented on your great photographic technique so be proud man! Heh.

Later.
