Tourist in My City Challenge #1 - Times Square

May 21, 2013  •  10 Comments

For the last few months I've been planning a photography challenge and I've finally come up with the perfect one. It is often said that those who live in New York City take a lot of what the city has to offer for granted. We live here and many times we go through the motions of going from point A to point B without really absorbing our surroundings. Although I've been photographing city sites for a few years now, I'm still guilty of not truly knowing my adopted hometown. For example, I've never been to Ellis Island or The Statue of Liberty! Well, that stops today.  I have a fantastic list of places I'd like to see, photograph and experience. I will share them with this Tourist in My City Challenge. Perhaps this exercise will also help me to walk a little slower and take everything in, as the tourist do. (much to the dismay of the locals!)  :) My list includes some obscure places that are fascinating due to their history or architecture and also some classics. I'll start with what is probably the most visited place in Manhattan: Times Square:
