My weekend visit to NYC!

Landing at JFK, for a while all you can see is ESB, kinda disappointing, then then skyline suddenly hits you....



Travelling through the streets to my hotel, the famous yellow cabs and wide avenues go by, just like on T.V.



Settled in, walking out of the hotel straight on to 4th avenue... along a few streets to meet the monster...



...then its smaller, prettier sister...



walking deeper in to the canyons towards the lights....





..moving along further, a crystal forms by the roadside...



...then all opens in to a quiet oasis.



Time to head back and challenge the monster, climbing to its shoulders and looking down on to its chlidren...



...and to a distant flock...



...the monsters spire reaching to the sun..,



Heading east, a stone monolith crosses murky waters..



...another relative rising to the sky...



...it's family crowd round, as if protecting a wound...



...they reveal a deep scar, a place where the mightiest once stood and fell...



...the scars run deep, but new life and hope stand with it...



...finally taking to the skies, the mother looks on, standing tall and strong.

Nice collection of shots there, looks like you hit the main spots and had a good time. I like the Foster Hearst Tower angle shot, very nice.

I am so pissed, when I went to NYC two years ago, I had a digtal camera that used floppy disks... that's right floppies!!! Well 3/4 disks were corrupted :(

I can't wait to go back
