Flat Iron Building

26 July 2011// 5th Avenue and 23rd Street  5:59pm  CMQ-0032

1/500th at F11  18mm lens  ISO 400

A New York City Landmark, said to be the first “skyscraper”.  It was made possible by Mr Otis’ invention of the safety brake for elevators.  Even with the 18mm lens it is hard to find a spot to get it all in without also including to many other things.  I waited for the light to be in my favor and stood in the street.  I love the light at this time of day.  The sky doesn’t overexpose and there is shadow detail.

The Bull

Posted by alifeinthecity on July 22, 2011

22 July 2011//Bowling Green   7:20am                        CMQ_9632

There are over 12,000 pictures of this bull on Flickr…but it is still a cool shot.  Usually when I am here there are so many people posing or snapping it is hard to get a good shot.  This morning it was already over 90 degrees and was heading for 104…a new record.  I guess the heat kept everybody away.  By the way, The Bull is in Bowling Green, not Wall Street……
