View From The Room

We love visiting NYC! It’s got an energy and character I don’t think you can find any other place. Using points, we uped our room as in, we went up to the 25th floor so we could have the view you see in the last blog and this. While they’re not pine trees, the vertical lines out the window just fascinate me.

I don’t know if it’s the contrast of the shapes against the lines or the novelty of the water towers themselves, perhaps they make me think of the old west, whatever it is they just grab my eye!

This is the roof top view from our room looking left and right. I spent most of the night shooting them and then once the light came up (what light there is) I just kept on going. It’s a search for patterns, textures and character. The entire time I was thinking B&W. Looking for whites and blacks is the key because they are what give a visual depth to the varing heights of roofs and towers. I just love it!
