Have you seen the Big Apple from the water? I have to say, the view is spectacular!
Elizabeth and I took a 90 minute “Landmark Cruise” around the southern part of Manhattan and had a truly enjoyable time.
We waved as we went by “Lady Liberty,”
and went under the Brooklyn Bridge,
the Manhattan Bridge,
and the Williamsburg Bridge…twice!
After we disembarked, we caught the subway to Grand Central Station where I got this photo in the Great Hall – one of my favorites of my NYC images.
I waited until the woman in the red dress was right in the spotlight and used a very slow shutter speed to capture the frenetic movement of people around her as she checked her phone. Got it! (For fun, count the number of people looking at phones…crazy!)
I love the energy of New York and having time with friends, wonderful food, and so much to see and do. But coming home to SoCal is still the best way to end every trip. Happy to be back on the Left Coast.
