Travelogue – New York City

On my recent trip to New York City, I wanted to use both my DSLR and my Iphone camera – but to keep it simple, I decided that I would take just a few photos with my Iphone, trying to capture my trip in 3 or 4 photos from each day.  Here they are:

Reflections in a building on 8th Avenue. Stuck in traffic on the way to my hotel, since there was a festival on 8th Avenue.
Waiting in line outside the Whitney for the Kusama exhibit. No photos are allowed inside the Whitney, so this is the view through the window, with Kusama on the bottom and the Whitney ceiling lights on the top.
Bas relief with graffiti, St. Mark’s Place
Stickers and graffiti on St. Mark’s Place
Pigeons on 8th Avenue

Barneys 500

One of the things I love about New York is the creativity of the store windows.  Barneys has some of the best displays.  This is the Barneys 500 – a race course for shoes that ran across windows in the front and side of the store.
