A Canadian Photographers Artistic Journey

Spring in New York City and...4000 miles for a sandwich.

I had gone to New York last year about this time and discovered how different the face of the city had changed.  This time the apple trees were blossoming and it seemed almost summertime.   I had a few photoshoots while in NYC and in between those shoots, walked the streets seeking the color and gesture that the city offers.  I have to say I love the people there - they have a very unique character - and the food was amazing.  New Yorkers sure know how to eat!  We stayed in a beautiful hotel on the water (Sheraton Lincoln - thanks for everything!) and took beautiful shots at the Manhattan Skyline. We had some adventures while shooting some of these street photos, for example, got into a small fight in Washington Square Park, met a movie star on the streets of Greenwich Village (couldn't tell you his name though - Daniel something?!), lots of nudity on a hot day in Central Park, visited the unbelievable B&H Photo (twice!), ate cannolies and "Nuts for Nuts" worth killing for and not to mention Katz Deli.  Oh Katz Deli... where have you been all of my life?  Do you not know your sinfully delicious mile-high brisket beef is calling me even still?

Yes, we are back in Canada now but New York memories still linger.  Ah.. the Empire State Building at twilight, Brooklyn Bridge at 2 am, Pier 17 on the dock, Dunkin Donuts breakfasts and the ocean splashing up on the rocks.  What a wonderful place - a photographers dream!  We'll be back - same time next year?  Until then, we have more photos posted on our website here under "NEW'!  Scenes from NYC".

Katz Deli!
