314/51

We went to the City with no real plan other then to take lots of photos just walk around. We took the ferry over, then caught the bus to 42nd and 7th Ave, two blocks from Times Square. I had thought of perhaps heading over to 9th Ave to visit B&H but decided it would be to much of a tease and I didn’t have the will power to stop myself from purchasing everything on my photography wish list. B dragged me we headed in the opposite direction, through Time Square into Toys R Us.

We stopped in to see the three story Ferris wheel, each car designed as a different iconic toy. The air in the store was full of excitement from all the, what seemed like, 1000s of children. It was a quick stop and we were off to Rockefeller Center. It shouldn’t have, since it is November, but I was taken by surprise to see all of the outside dining table had been replaced by the yearly skating rink. The Christmas tree was not in place yet. We rounded the corner and were glad to be greeted the familiar face of Atlas.

I think if I were to take a trip into NYC I would run out of film...uh, I mean fill up a SD card. So many photo ops I'm sure. Great B&W.

Love this perspective! Looks great in B&W too. I should really head up to NYC again one of these days...

I love everything about this photo- the black and white, the HDR, the wide angle...everything!
