The best of New York

Shots that will inspire you

Grand Central Terminal

This time was my third one. First 2010, then 2015 and recently, 2017. New York is truly one of my favorite places. NYC has something. I am almost sure I need to blame the TV for that. Maybe the 150 times I saw Home Alone 2. Maybe Seinfeld or Friends. Maybe the movies. Maybe my grandpa’s love for the Yankees. Maybe my 2010’s failed U2 concert. I don’t know what or why exactly, but New York has that thing that captivates me.

I still remember the first time I rode the subway. We stepped out at Madison Square and the mental picture I recall is that I was speechless. Wow. So many people, so many buildings (and for a Costa Rican those are really tall buildings!). Your mindset is expanded in every corner of the city. So many different worlds among so much concrete.

If you have traveled to NYC, you will notice something. People rush. Everyone rushes, even if they do not notice it. Suddenly, you find yourself running through subway stairs and pedestrian crossings. Even if you are a tourist. This time I decided I was going to stop intentionally and try to catch some pics. Details that make New York New York. Details are what make life special.

Nora Ephron could not say it any better:

“I look out the window and I see the lights and the skyline and the people on the street rushing around looking for action, love, and the world’s greatest chocolate chip cookie, and my heart does a little dance.”

NYC is the best place to shoot. With a Nikon D3300 armed with a Nikkor 35mm f/1.8G lens, a GoPro Hero 4 and my useful iPhone 7, I took some pictures that I really like. I want to share them with you. It would mean the world if you like this and share it!

My final advice is: travel to New York. Just find the way to.
