Empire State of Mind

February 23, 2013  •  3 Comments

I often walk around NYC and find myself in neighborhoods like Chelsea, Flatiron & Herald Square. By far, my favorite sight is the Empire State Building. In a way, it's like the Mona Lisa's eyes. Everywhere you go it follows you and it is beautiful, imposing and statuesque from every angle. My favorite time of the day to shoot it is in the morning when the sun shines right on it and the windows sparkle. Above are some of the shots I've taken of this omnipresent landmark. I confess, I've only been upstairs once, and I"ve not yet been to the observation deck made famous by so many films, including the beloved classics Sleepless in Seattle and An Affair to Remember. The tourist lines are usually wrapped around the block! I cannot wait to photograph it at night some day very soon. Of course, everyone takes photos of it, but I feel privileged to have the chance to do it on regular basis.

Macy's & the Empire, and Empire & The Garden prints available!

The Empire State Building as seen in Sleepless in Seattle. I wonder if they'll ever do an actual heart shaped lighting display for Valentine's Day?
