Black & White in New York City

We’ve just been on another wonderful trip into NYC, and for this trip I decided to get a bit more creative with photography, rather than take the same old pictures again. I haven’t done much black and white photography before, so I turned my camera settings to B+W for the whole day – it was a really interesting challenge! Looking for the changes in shadow depth rather than pops of colour made me change my thought process for composing a photo, and I think I got some pretty good results!

NYC: A view from above and more.

Another great day visiting NYC:

A helicopter flight over Manhattan (an engagement gift from some amazing friends), wandering the High Line (it got a lot greener since the last time we visited!), soaking up the vibes and culture at the 9th Ave Food Festival (they shut down 15 blocks!), and a dusk-time walk through Central Park (our first sighting of a raccoon, and a bird swallowed a fish whole!).

Enjoy πŸ™‚
