Hi folks! Haven’t posted pictures in a long time… chose to write a thousand (and a lot more) words instead. That’s not to say I had stopped taking them! Well… here are some of my favorites from a recent trip to the US. As usual full credit to my trusty Olympus E-520.

1) The canopy at Port Imperial in Weehawken NJ.

2) New Yorkers (and their neighbors from across the Hudson) waiting patiently for the ferry at Port Imperial.

3) Midtown Manhattan from the ferry. The Empire State Building stands alone in the background. A green tint has been applied to the photograph.

4) These Japanese tourists looked a little intimidated by the Manhattan traffic… like skittles in a bowling alley…

5) On my way back to Jersey, while waiting at the harbor in Manhattan. The sunset was too beautiful to ignore. Didn’t even want to spoil the snap with a watermark!

6) Found this perfectly smooth pebble chatting up a leaf on a wooden bench. Wonder what they were speaking about…

7) Look carefully. There is an airborne guest coming in from the west…

8) Proof that Spring was bursting at the seams…

9) Who says there can’t be beauty in a discarded piece of broken rock?

10) …or in flowers which are hidden in the foliage, seldom to be seen…

11) The pier at Port Imperial. Something about the gnarly nature of wood fascinates me…

12) As I was saying.

13) Of course Metal cannot be ignored either. Pissed off a dog while shooting this one…

14) Maybe the sign was a hint. Which I didn’t take… and kept clicking…

15) Manhattan at night. Kept the camera firmly on a trash can, kept the shutter open for 5 seconds at ISO1600. This is the best I could manage.

16) Fire Hydrants also fascinate me. Maybe I was a dog in my previous life…

17) It was cacophony when she rolled in at high speed, screeching to a halt at the 42nd street subway station underneath Times Square. But the people didn’t seem to mind…

18) I was sitting at a cafe in the upper west side, enjoying some wonderful Eggs Benedict when the melee of signs above my head caught my eye. The breakfast was quickly forgotten.
