Steet photography

Small doors.
Clean streets.
Waking up at 2 in the morning to go see some dead fish being sold.
Sushi for breakfast. Noodles for lunch. Sushi for dinner.
People. Lots and lots of people. Polite people.
Police cars that look like they just descended from an anime movie.
French pastries tastier than those in Paris. Perfect cappuccino.
Walking. All day.
Interesting mélange between modern and traditional.
Almost nobody speaks English.
Google translate saves the day. Sometimes.
Learning to eat noodles and rice as locals do. We can’t slurp that loud.
New tastes, new smells, new sights.
Signs and advertisements everywhere. Handwritten. Printed. Photographs.
Somehow, it feels like Istanbul. The smell of the sea is the same. The smell of the city… much better.
Cash, must have cash.
Bento box.
Hello Kitty!
Metal snakes running at 200 mph.
Kon’nichiwa Tokyo!

World Trade One building in New York

New York as it is viewed from the observation deck at the 104 floor of the World Trade One building. A magnificent view that you can enjoy by installing Microsoft’s Research HDView software for your browser. It will allow you to zoom in and pan in all directions.

I created this panorama by stitching together 39 high resolution images taken with my Fujifilm X-E2. Make sure you view it on full screen for an immersive experience (click on the icon on top right corner of the frame).

Have fun – and please leave a comment.

New York is like a living organism. Its streets are the veins and arteries through which biped cells move, collide and interact. There is an endless stream of photo opportunities for the street artist as well as for the occasional photographer who is only experimenting with this art form. The photos below are some of the results of my own experiments on these ever changing streets of New York. Enjoy!
