Like or not this is on of the Upper East’s icons. It’s been there since 1932 and has appeared in multiple TV shows, most known Seinfeld.

I hate when it rains like it did (does) today! But, if you want to snap great picture you have to get wet. It also helps keeping people home and out of the frame 😉

Today I got somewhat luky, as a horse carriage just happened to pass by while I was shooting this steam vent in 5th Ave. Today I got somewhat unluky as being so dark already and the horse running in at quite a peace I was only able to capture a ghost. I was nice dream, though.

Tonight was a wonderful evening to relax in Bryant Park. The lawn was still closed, but people gathered around it and specially crowded near the fountain. Is spring finally here?

It’s been a long time since I don’t post images like this one. Like the previous ones, this one was shot handheld with a low shutter speed. The more I shoot this kind of images, the more I like them.

With nothing in my camera for today’s post I came across the new subway line being currently constructed in 2nd Ave. It was raining, and I was lucky some workers were still working with the aid of strong lights. There were a lot of interesting picture to be made, and I’ll be back there soon, but for tonight I choosed this one.

Not bad for a 1/2 sec handheld exposure. I have to repeat this shot with a little more of light or a tripod.
