New York City monochromePosted: November 25, 2008
I finally got my black&white rolls developed from the NYC trip! Time post-holiday has been really busy, especially at work, but here we are. I still have a roll of colour film to finish and develop, so you'll have to wait for part II. But why wait any longer? :) Here's the Manhattan skyline seen from the Staten Island ferry. My 35mm Holga is having some winding problems, so this got double exposed by accident. Quite like the effect though.
One of my favourites places we visited during the long weekend.
I took this photo with my camera phone, too (see previous NYC post below),
but somehow this looks more timeless and elegantly New York.
I love those view/binocular things so much!
I'm gutted I didn't have a chace to take a similar shot to this of the Flatiron Building.
Maybe next trip! :) I just would love to have those two as a pair together.
As you can see there is a little non-street photography theme emerging as well.
During the trip I had hardly any time to myself let alone a chance to focus on any street action,
hence the more touristy approach. Maybe next trip, eh! :D
What I also learned on this trip is that the half frame camera just doesn't like it when the sun goes down. :(
These night time photos have a lovely atmosphere nevertheless. I just would have liked some of the shots to have a bit more sharpness. Especially these ones taken from top of the Empire State Building.
This double frame is my favourite photo from the trip though. Not near as perfect as I'd like,
but for me it captures something very authentic from the experience and holiday we had.
Very New York, very amazing! :)
