The Big City

I have always been a big city kind of guy, but I’d never been to New York.  Growing up in Southern California, I’ve always viewed the Big Apple with some kind of mystical quality….and it lived up to my expectations when Chanda and I recently visited for the first time.  Needless to say, this place is definitely full of history.  I’m dividing the photos up into separate entries so everyone can easily digest them.  I wanted to take a bit of a documentary approach to these photos (which will become apparent when you see the subsequent posts after this first one).  However, this first post is meant to exemplify the big city in all its glory, and if you are not familiar with my “style” of photography, this should be a very good example of how I like to photograph things:  Big.  Bold.  Epic.  As you may have noticed, I like lots of vibrant colors and different angles.  So here we go – our adventure into the Big Apple.  Enjoy!
