The Best of New York

Here are some of my favorites from New York. I have a lot more I need to process over a long weekend — I look forward to that! But in the meantime, leading up to a little announcement tomorrow night, here are some of the best from NYC! :)

Grand Theft Auto – Skyview of Algonquin

It’s probably one of the coolest places in the world for photography. I could have stayed on that helicopter all day long. Now that I have all the heli-jacking techniques I learned from GTA4, I might just try it the next time!

Not Lost in New York

Here I am in the middle of Times Square in New York on a perfect night. The sky was this strange blue color of a cool dusk night and every light in the city was in full burn. Enjoy!

Afternoon Near Ground Zero

I shot this in New York right near the World Trade Center husk. Also, I attempted to put the point of this cube right inside the phi sweet spot for your maximum viewing pleasure!

A Castle in New York

Actually I think it’s just a church. But I like how it is positioned on this corner and the architecture is pretty unique for that area. I think I was around Chelsea when I shot this.

Here is a really cool building I found on the west side of Manhattan.  Someone left a comment on my Flickr account that every one of these window panes had to be customized for the curves.

New York and New Flickr?

I uploaded the picture of Manhattan below to Flickr today and I started thinking about this daily routine. Upload… Blog here… Write something moderately interesting… Rinse and repeat.

Some of my friends mentioned that Zooomr was launching their Mark III software today. I looked into it and the new features look really sharp (although it hasn’t launched yet…it should later today). I watched a bit of this UStream.tv deal about the launch with Thomas Hawk (Zoomr CEO and cool photographer) and this 19-year-old programmer guru named Kris. I think that guy is pretty sharp… certainly dedicated and passionate and that’s 90% of the battle.

I am curious how Zoomr and such a small team can implement so many cool features when Flickr is fairly stagnant. I think Flickr is great and all…they just seem a bit lazy with adding cool features. It’s where I keep all my work and I will likely copy over some of my best to Zooomr as soon as they get that auto-import option turned on. Flickr has promised to give Zooomr the API as soon Zooomr gives theirs up, which should happen later today.

I put an extra picture below… another one of my favorites from New York, since this post has kind of a “new” theme.

Colors

On the way to a meeting in New York, I stopped to take this shot of this colorful area with interesting shadows. I thought the textures and shapes we kinda nice. I don’t know… I usually don’t take shots like this but occasionally I see some nice phi action out there.
