Streets of New York

The beauty of New York City in early December! Love so many things about it, and of course strolling around the streets of Manhattan always feels pretty magical. I also got to try some handheld night shots this time (coming soon). In the meanwhile, here are some pictures from a nice little dusk time in the city, cloud reflection on the skyscrapers and all ❤

Walking along 5th Avenue NY and surroundings :) Quite a few interesting photo-worthy details around, was so much fun! :D

Exploring NYC: in love with every urban detail

street of New York

NEW YORK, NY – Almost 6 months have gone by since my trip to New York and I simply can’t get over all the interesting details in every street. I keep reopening the archive and looking for more pics to edit, as with time going by every photo of New York seems to acquire a special meaning to me :) I have always been extremely curious to go and see what it really was all about and now with the Christmas season approaching (with NY being the set of about 90% of all the Christmas movies…) it’s time to watch Serendipity over and over again :P This year though, it is different to watch it because for the first time I have actually been there :) xx

Rockefeller Center: a day up and around the top of the rock

Rockefeller Center in New YorkAfter having shared the photos from my experience up the 70th floor of the Top of the Rock in NY in a previous post (see link and collage :D), here are some images of the Rockefeller Center Square and the beautiful streets nearby :) For those of you who are looking for a new angle to take pics of the famous Radio City Music Hall, there are some wide windows at the entrance of the Rockefeller Center that are perfect to tick off another thing from your photography bucket list of NY :) Also, I am not so much of a sweet tooth generally, but I had the lemon cheesecake of my life at the Rockefeller Café in that nice outdoor area near the fountains that you can see in the pic above…. highly recommended ! :) Enjoy xx

NY on Top of the Rock

Top of the Rock

Absolutely loved the experience on Top of the Rockefeller Center in NY :) You can go up the building with an elevator that takes about 43 secs to go from ground level to the 70th floor (!) and enjoy a breathtaking view of the city, with Central Park, the Chrysler Building, the Empire State Building and even the Statue of Liberty clearly visible :)

“When I’m in New York….

…I just want to walk down the street and feel this thing, like I’m in a movie.” ~Ryan Adams

I’m back from a short 4 days photo trip in NYC ! It was my first time in the USA, which makes me extremely happy to say I have now been to Europe, Australia, Asia AND America :) (At this stage I start feeling I should add a Cape Town trip to the travel wishlist to see a bit of Africa too :) )  So these are the first few pics of the streets of NYC that I have walked along these days :) The last day I was about to jump on the doubledecker bus to make sure I visited all the most important sites across the Downtown and Uptown Manhattan but when I read their guide I realised I had already walked across all the streets the bus goes to ….. so I think, a good traveller just KEEPS WALKING :)
