A recent trip Stateside for my first American wedding culminated in a two day stopover in the Grande Pomme. If you can stray from the bustle of Times Square and other tourist hot spots, New York City is a 'photographer like me's' paradise. I took up residence in East Village and spent one of my mornings roaming the streets with no agenda other than to observe, enjoy, and occasionally ask if I could take someone's photo. Whilst I am a firm believer in taking photos of moments where the subject is unaware's of the camera, there are some instances where a simple please is advisable.
NYC has bucket loads of character and diversity which makes taking photos both enjoyable and exciting, and I hope to return there soon with more time on my hands. I also hope to repeat my maiden trip to Madison Square Garden where I had the pleasure of seeing my beloved New York Knicks dispatch of the Phoenix Suns (that's basketball for those experiencing confusion). June will be my next trip across the Atlantic for wedding duties and it's fair to say I could get very used to such excursions. Thank you to all the people who put me up, let me take photos of them and particularly Will and Bekah whose wedding was the primary purpose of my trip - lot's of pictorial evidence of their matrimony to follow.
