After a few photography trips to the Brooklyn Bridge, I realized how easy it was to also explore Manhattan. More importantly I realized how close the World Trade Center was to the bridge. This opened up so many different outlets for me to grow as a photographer.
I only wish I would have started to these adventures while growing up as a teenager. But, there’s no time for regrets they say, starting somewhere is always better than not starting at all, right?
This little trip definitely helped give me a better perspective on what the city can offer you. There’s something special about all the loud honking horns, sirens, foot traffic, smell, you name it. The city takes a serious hold of you. But in a good way. As overwhelming as it seems, it’s still so addicting.
The chaotic nature NYC provides, allowed me to view the city in a hole new light. It was one of the first times I’ve taken a walk around the city alone. I found myself near the Financial District and World Trade Center, poking my head around corners, staring up into the sky trying to find some fun lookup shots of each building.
To my surprise, depending on where you stand under the One World Trade Center you’ll notice the building looks like a modern day metal pyramid. We should thank the architects at Skidmore, Owings & Merrill. They did an incredible job designing and building such a structure with great depth and dimension.
Hope you enjoy some of the images I took while walking the city.
