Manhattan Monday 9

New York City - Empire State Building peeking through

New York City – Empire State Building peeking through

Not all the urban photos from the top of the bus looked better in black and white!  There are about nine shades of orange in the bricks in this picture and four shades of blue to the concrete of the taller buildings around them.

Crossing Henry Street, with the elevated Manhattan Bridge access ramp on the left.

Henry Street, on the lower east side, is part of one of the many Chinese neighbourhoods in Manhattan.  There is no longer just one Chinatown.

Photos taken, as the two previous Manhattan Monday posts, from the top of a double decker bus.

    Love the first picture.

  2. Very cool. I don’t have any kind of special camera and often find that what I’m attempting to capture simply doesn’t do it. I feel a lot of travelers have this issue, even those with high-level photography equipment. I’m loving the shades, though, and you really did capture the massive urban structures overshadowing the original stretches of architecture that span the streets.

    Thanks for your comments, Darcy. I really like the Sony RX100III for this type of street photography – both architectural and more intimate shots. And it saves me lugging around my aging SLR.
