Still OHNY weekend, a few blocks north of manhattan and the weather cleared up considerably for us. From atop the Highbridge Water Tower, this is the view of Harlem River. You could see the tower’s shadow in the lower right corner. The bridges are the Alexander Hamilton Bridge and George Washington Bridge.
The annual OHNY weekend gives access to several places in the five boroughs that would normally be closed to the public. Of course St. Patrick is not one of those places because it’s open to the public most of the time. This photo was taken on top of the Rockefeller Center Rooftop Garden.
It’s the first day of OHNY 2007, and the first time for us to join, unlucky for us the weather was a bit overcast and gloomy. To the left is St. Patrick’s Cathedral, the view was fantastic not unlike viewing St. Patrick’s from below we had a different perspective of the cathedral along with fifth avenue. To top it off, peering over Rockefeller Center Rooftop Garden there was a parade going on so the short wait was worth it.
In a few months, the building in the middle (Saks Fifth Avenue) will be adorned with lights for the holidays.
Read about it.
This is my rendition of an urban mountain range.
Aww.. poor bird.
Three days barely passed and here I am shooting at anything I find interesting. Luckily, we were invited to my aunt’s place in New Jersey and had the opportunity to go to Atlantic City. While taking a walk along the boardwalk, we parked our behinds and took a break. Three days, ain’t enough to make you a “bird man” (bird photographer). As far as I know, bird shooting requires some serious equipment but we chanced on a few birds and enticed them with some crumbs for a li’l bit of impromptu bird shooting. But I guess feeding time is not the best time to shoot them because they get so frisky, most of the shots I got were blurry. I kept thinking.. “Quit moving, dammit!”
