I have had this post in mind for a few weeks now and I couldn’t resist sharing it with you as I’m very excited about it.
I have a love affair with New York and I’m not afraid to say it. I want to show you what this incredible city has to offer and within this series I’m going to show you the usual, the unusual, and the downright, unashamedly quirky. I will include photo’s from those who call New York home, show you places you must visit if you go to New York, mouthwatering eateries and not forgetting work from local artists and designers.
To start off the series I have picked out some of my favourite places within this great city. My photos were taken on my last visit to New York, back in 2008, and they capture my view of the city. You might think these are the usual tourist spots to photograph, and you’d be right, but they all mean something to me. Like the wonderful Lady Liberty and what she symbolises; a gift from the French, she stands tall at the gateway to New York, Manhattan, and to America itself.
Brooklyn bridge, connecting many a New Yorker and tourist to the land of opportunity. Without turning around (its hard to resist – trust me), walk to the centre of the bridge, once there turn around to take in New York in all its glory.
Not forgetting Times Square, the central hub of the city, where the bright lights of the billboards are just one of the main attractions here. This is where the city never sleeps.
I can’t wait to share more of New York in the coming weeks, and I hope you will enjoy them as much as I do. Danni xo
