New York 2


A recent trip to New York with some new camera equipment was rewarded with piercingly blue skies

above that unrivalled skyline.

From the Brooklyn bridge

A walk across the East river on the Brooklyn bridge offered some amazing photographic opportunities, possibly made even more interesting because of the maintenance planks, boards, wires and cables. The skyline breaks the blue sky while the busy river teams with boats. Helicopters ply the tourist route out to the Statue of Liberty and water taxis let people hop on and off on a route which takes in the aircraft carrier Intrepid with the space shuttle 'parked' on top.

Wires and cable galore

There are so many great areas to explore in New York, but the perspectives you can get from the water must rank as some of the best. I think there is always something special about adding a river, a lake or a sea in the composition.

hi! i am Anne (hence vANNilla) - two 'N's autocorrect WILL autocorrect - grrrrrr I can most often be found cooking up a storm in the kitchen,(with my trusty thermomix) behind a camera or a kindle. If you are a traveller/photographer my bog is @vannilla If you have come as a baker my blog is i studied economics in Edinburgh in the early 70's; now retired from a day job, on paper i have plenty of time to explore the blogosphere and enjoy the shared experiences of others. like every other retiree i know we wonder how we fitted in a day job. I split my time between Guernsey,. In the Channel Islands -a 20-odd square mile island with 60thousand+ inhabitants- and Phoenix, Arizona. The mix is perfect- the former is beautiful but attacks of cabin fever are never too far away. Arizona, on the other hand IS king of the open road and has THE biggest bluest sky EVER. my blogs revolve around baking (vannillarock) and photography/travel if you like what you see please do start a conversation :)
