FROM MY ALBUM OF STREET PHOTOGRAPHY IN NY

Sharing the delight !

Summer 2010 was not my 1st visit to NY. Earlier , I passed through the city and had just a glimpse..Had no opportunity to take photos and record the experience. This year, I was there on a vacation during the summer. A period well spent among relatives and friends, in libraries and Museums, upstate greenery and ........... streets,,in spite of the heat.

A city with towering buildings, wide footpaths, great subway system, rivers ans sea-shores,parks and open spaces.......most importantly, a cauldran of people from all corners of the world.

I was armed with a book from a friend of my elder son,titled 'ARTWALK IN NEW YORK' - you can read it too during your next visit there.( http://www.amazon.com/Artwalks-New-York-Delightful-Discoveries/dp/0935576479#reader_0935576479 ) and cameras. I have shared some of my photos in my earlier blogs :

Here are a few more photos from my HDD .

When Westereners  visit India, they often publish photos of Sadhus ( ascetics) and pilgrimage. To their view point, these ash-smeared persons with coloured robes ( yet,some are witthout even a loin-cloth ) are people and situations which they find ..... what will be the description of their feeing..... queer ?

I would have liked to have a collection of photos of people I found 'queer'...... those with lots of body-piercing, tattoos on the forearm and coloured hair. Well, taking photographs of such persons would not have been appreciated.......so, did not press my luck.

Some are Wonderful ! A few are not !

New York is a city of sky-scrappers. Now other cities have followed the trend, but, the charm and wonder have stayed in the mind of the visitors.  Here we have,clockwise from RH side,a bulding photographed from City Hall area, view of Newport across

Street scenes  from my New York 'photo-diary'. I find Westerners are not comfortable with people shooting their photo. At Brooklyn,even a child,when my wife and I were taking a few shots in a neighbouring park,  asked me why I was taking photographs.
