Here I come again

Soon I shall be boarding a plane and heading over across from the "old" continent to the "new world" for a bit of R&R. I am excited about visiting the "Big Apple" once again.

And why not indeed. From a photographer's perspective New York is a treasure trove of opportunities. There is such a wealth of subjects and images to capture.

World renowned architectural landmarks such as the United Nations, Empire State and Chrysler buildings. Landscape and nature in Central Park. Cityscapes, bridges and exciting skylines all over the metropolis. Famous touristic attractions like Times Square and all the different museums.

But to me the most exciting of all is the teeming street life. And now with the possibilities offered by the editorial images section on DT, I am really looking forward to photographing the hustling and bustling scenes unfolding witihin the concrete jungle of the city. Not only for my own pleaseure but also in the hope of having a few of them appear in my portfolio here.

But at the same time, I am well aware of the enormous challenge that this opportunity represents. After all NYC must be one of the most photographed sites in the world, and to get my own pictures of such an established subject accepted I must make sure that they are original, innovative, exciting, technically perfect and compositionally strong.

Bring it on :-)
