I felt that I was in search of something…but I had no idea what. I suppose I was just out seeing all of those things I’d never viewed before.
As I hiked the cross streets and byways, one particular song by Dave Thomas Jr. came on my iPod, “We are the Stars Tonight.” So, with the buzzing of New York all around me, I also had the music carrying me onward. The following is a hodgepodge of the things I thought photo worthy. So, if you'd like to hit 'play' for the first track, you might just have a similar experience as to what I did.
I hope you enjoy the sights, too.
I sought out a few locations from the TV show, Castle.
An old bakery turned antique store.
The door of a small cafe.
The texture of this building was simply amazing.
The stairs intrigued me...
A fire hydrant made me remember one in particular from Rockford, Washington.
A barbershop on Fifth Avenue with its address made completely out of mirror fragments.
No idea...it was simply cool.
The lonely churchyard was simply begging to be photographed.
Varying architecture loomed far above me.
The trees in full bloom at Madison Square Park.
The historic Flatiron Building,
A piece of art I bought from a local artist for $1. He was sitting on the steps outside his flat with all of his 'art' and the rocks he'd painted. It kind of reminded me of the lemonade stands the kids have back home.
Waiting for the Long Island Railroad.
After spending over an hour sitting in Central Park on a secluded byway, I took this photograph before leaving.
Broadway at night.
After arriving at my brother's flat, I began a few drafts of a blog post that will probably never see the light of the Internet. The bright, glowing effect of the setting sun was created by a longer exposure time.
I almost didn't even see this bus - it blent in so well - but I finally saw it. If you are having trouble locating it, look carefully in the exact center of the photo.
