Susan and I spent a long Memorial Day weekend in New York City. We spent time in the various neighborhoods in the city enjoying the museums, restaurants, theater and vibrant, exciting life on the streets. At home in an urban environment, we enjoy travelling by trains, subways, ferries and on foot and are out and about from the early morning until late at night. Along the way we get to savor what a diverse and dynamic culture that is New York City.
On Memorial Day we visited the 9/11 Museum and Memorial at Ground Zero for a very moving, visceral and sobering experience that at once highlights individual acts of courage and heroism while offering up a world view that is for me both perplexing and without explanation.
So here are a few of my favorite pictures from one of the greatest cities in the world. Looking forward to our next visit already.
All images were taken with Fuji X100s with 23mm f2.0 lens in RAW format; processed in Adobe Lightroom 5.7.
