Journey of a body on this earth

As it came to an end…


Taken from our boat ride around Manhattan, I managed to capture a few skyline shots, which I’ve been posting as of late.  With all of the photos, my foremost concern was to show detail.  After all, what good is it to look at a skyline if you can’t see all the amazing architecture in it.  None of my skyline posts have been straight up monochrome and this one is no exception.  For this image I decided to go along the sepia-ish route, but not completely as there are still some other colors included.

I really try to be unique and not copy someone else’s process although I do try to learn from what others do.  Hopefully it works!

Hope everyone has a great rest of the weekend!

  1. Amazing picture! What camera did you use? Been to New York a couple of times, love the city!

  2. I like the processing – and your originality is truly always felt – but I like how you note that we learn from others – I think without realizing it we glean and learn more just by being exposed – it is layered into originality in different ways – and someone once said “there is nothing new under he sun”
    Anyhow – the sky pulled me in from the reader – it feels very “serious” -and so calm- I did get a little captured in the modern feel (still look for twin towers after all those years) and I was just a small art display with NYC stuff festured – and it had so much lady liberty -‘well it was nice to see this classic view (and current) of such an iconic place.

    • Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts here. I’m not good at writing how I feel, but I hope my images convey a bit of me. I think your analysis of this picture is spot on! Have you noticed I don’t do light-hearted photos or edits? My outward personality is very light-hearted and funny but I have a serious side that thinks a lot and you picked up on that here. Speaking to your comment on its almost modern touch, I thought it had almost a scifi-ish feel in a way which is what you saw in a modern way. I did get a distant picture of the statue of liberty but it’s not that exciting and quite distant so I haven’t posted it. Thank you for sharing your thoughts…it gets me to open up a bit more. 🙂
