Wanderlust NYC - C I T Y S C A P E S

Hello wanderers! 

I finally have the first installment from my trip to NY. I know I've been talking about these a lot, and they're finally done! It took a good chunk of time to finish these, but I am happy with how they turned out, truly. I have so many favorites, it was hard to narrow them down for this post.

The first set of images I shared are Cityscapes, my favorite of all the sets you'll be seeing.

I really feel as though I was able to experience a real city. I live in miami, and yes, it's a city. But it pales in comparison to New York. There's a certain energy there that's hard to miss, and even harder to replicate. There's a beat, a rhythm, and I found myself dancing to it without even being aware I was becoming a part of it. I've never thought myself a city girl by any means or standard, yet here I am, missing NY in all her glory. I miss the people, the winter, the speed, the subway. Everyone is off doing their own thing, but still, there's a sense of camaraderie when you share a train with someone. It's odd, that feeling. Even with everyone looking down at their phones and feet as they walk, it still feels like there's a sense of companionship you don't get here in miami, and you can see it when something funny or weird goes down on the train and everyone laughs it claps. You can see it in the street vendors who very likely make the best gyros known to man. You can see it in every corner of every street. I can't really explain it, but that city has a mind of her own, and she doesn't play.

But enough of that.

All these shots were taken at different times, during different adventures. I've never been a huge fan of these types of photos, until I saw the shots appear right before eyes. I understand the appeal now, the attraction. It's a very humbling experience to see the city sprawled out before you. some of these shots needed some serious finessing, as most buildings are protected by impact glass to avoid any unfortunate accidents, and that glass makes for an appearance in photos. Either way, I'm happy with them and I can't wait to show you the second part! Nature and people! Stay tuned for that one as well.
