Pictures of the Week: back to NYC!

2019 is here!  It’s time for a new year of wonderful pictures that (hopefully) you enjoy!  I’m looking forward to what the year brings and can’t wait to share my creations with you (and hopefully help you get better along the way)!

The year, for me, started with a work trip to New York City.  It was a quick trip, and I didn’t have a ton of time, but I couldn’t sleep so I taxied down to Brooklyn to revisit some favorite spots there.  These are well-known locations and I’ve shot both of them before but it was something fun to do to pass the time while I was freezing (I forgot a coat, I know, I’m a moron).  So let’s kick off this year of Andy’s Travel Blog Pictures of the Week with two classic shots from one of the greatest cities in the world!

For the photographers: I didn’t think I would have any time for shooting on this trip so I just grabbed my Peak Design bag, threw my laptop in, and went out to New York.  I happened to have my 50mm Sony f1.4 lens, which I used for the first shot, handheld, and the second shot was with the Canon 24mm tilt-shift lens (steadied on a rock, since I didn’t have my tripod).  Let me know if you have any questions about shooting or post-processing, I’m going to do a revised post-processing workflow post soon!


  1. Triple WOW!! Who cares about the post-processing! These are fantastic photographs – thank You !! The two views brought back many wonderful memories for me and certainly evoked an emotional response!!. In 2000 I first met a distant/long lost cousin who lived in Carlton Avenue, Brooklyn. On that and many subsequent visits to NY from Sydney, Australia where I live, “Cousin Fran” took us places that were dear to her heart – DUMBO, Brooklyn Bridge Park, Commodore Barry Park, The River Café, Cranberry/Orange/Pineapple Streets and what we could access in the Brooklyn Naval Yards, the mandatory visit to Prospect Park….and then there were the car trips to Manhattan…all of which now hold a special place in my heart. Sadly, Cousin Fran is no longer with us and it is quite some time since I’ve visited Brooklyn/NY…however…it is a place I will never forget.

    • David, that’s one of my favorite comments I’ve ever received on the blog! I’m glad the pictures were able to bring back some wonderful memories for you, thanks so much for sharing them with us!
