Review by Julie, Australia
Had a fabulous day July 3rd 2015 walking the streets of New York with Leanne Staples, seeing her home city through her eyes and having an insight into a day in the life of a street photographer.
As a photographer myself, I wanted a quick entree into New York city, to find different angles to photograph it’s most iconic features as I only had one week and so much to do in that time.
We started our day near our lodgings in Tribeca and meandered past wonderful street art, reflections in puddles (which I noted many with camera’s in hand hovering over during my week in NYC), shadowy patterns and famous landmarks both iconic and those featured in many well known movies and shows.
Walking across the Brooklyn Bridge dodging the crowds and speeding cyclists was spectacular, the view back across the river from Brooklyn a highlight.
It was hot and humid, we walked probably 20 kms, so great walking shoes are a must and as the sun set our day was complete near the Flatiron sipping a cocktail on a roof top bar with the Empire State building within our sights.
A great way to see this famous city through the eyes of a local, find places you may otherwise miss, those you wish to return to and find out on your first day that the Subway is easy, NOT scary and a much faster and cheaper way to travel across town than a taxi!
Awesome, fun…thanks Leanne. - Julie, Australia
