Last month took me out of Asia, and back to America for a month. Apart from a few weeks spent with family and friends at home, the main reason for my visit was to attend the Eddie Adams Workshop in New York (images from that coming soon). After a few busier than I’ve ever had days there, there were a few extra days to spend sort of  bumming around NYC, visiting friends, taking in the sites, and playing with my new favorite thing, which essentially was built for photography like this. Below are a few of the shots that I liked, in no real particular order or narrative, while wandering around this city I really love, and just don’t visit enough.

A little stroll around some of  the Wall Street shenanigans. The interwebs are already flooded with way too many of these images, so I won’t bore you with more than three.

I’m just fascinated by the Hasidic Jewish communities of the city. I would love to do an in-depth project on them, but I’m not sure that will ever happen.

A trip around the city without some shots on the subways is just not possible.

I stayed with a friend in Brooklyn. This is from the top of his building.

It was in a very African-American community, and artworks like these were found everywhere. I think they are pretty beautiful.

I happen to be there on the day the new iPhone came out, and thought it would be a good idea to visit the big 5th Ave. store. It wasn’t really. Utter chaos is the best way to describe that scene. But outside the store, there was something much more calm and beautiful.

And finally, in the car on the way to the airport. My time in the big apple was over for this year. Hopefully I’ll return soon…
