Winter Sunrise on Grandview Avenue

The weather earlier this week was incredibly calm. One of the results was a series of crystal clear skies. This is a photo I shot when I got up to work out in the morning.

When I looked out the window, the pink horizon in the sky totally caught my attention. The early morning was a combination of the bright lights of the city and the incredible colors behind it in the sky.  I had to snap a quick pic!

A Little Patina in Lower Manhattan

On a recent trip to NY, my friend and I had experienced the city when it was a ghost town. I know that is a little hard to believe, but the week after NYE was so quiet, that Manhattan seemed like a deserted island.

We had to walk around for about 30 minutes to find a place that was actually open. Finally, we found a gem of a place in the village called Anyway Cafe. It was the type of hidden, petite place that makes Manhattan so special. The atmosphere was incredible, and the building was either built to look old, or just really old. I shot this photo of the door inside the bathroom.

The lock was old and metal and amazing. The patina of time gave it incredible charm. Loved it!

Christmas Tree Graveyard

While I was in New York visiting a friend, we enjoyed the great weather by grabbing lunch and eating in the park. Once we were finished, we headed to a little pub in the village. As we wandered through the park, we saw these kids making the most of the Christmas trees that has been abandoned after the holiday. They were playing a funny little game of hide and seek.
