New York – Part Four

This is slightly out of chronological order, but still worth sharing – the last of the pictures from our trip to New York a few weeks ago.

On our last full day we spent the time exploring some places we hadn’t been yet, and taking lots of pictures.

I love the colours in the Subway.

First stop was Chinatown – which seemed to be far bigger than the London equivalent – nestled alongside Little Italy.

The sights down here were pretty fascinating, and perfect for candid street shots.

I could probably have spent all day down here.

But alas we were hungry, and so went to grab lunch at a tiny wee diner; the exact kind of place that you see in movies… with big plates of eggs and sausage, orange juice, and bottomless coffee.

As well as the food hitting the spot perfectly, there was huge windows right in front of us that were perfect for people-watching/snapping…

Well fed up, we headed back over towards Union Square to see what we could find. It was a fair walk away, but we ditched the Subway to get a better feel for the city. Definitely a good choice, as the streets were filled with interesting sights along the way.

From there, we camped out in Union Square for a while with our cameras.

There was a whole host of interesting people around, and it was great to just sit and let the world go by for a couple of hours.

Grace had my RX100 for a bit, so she probably took a few of these. Definitely this one… as she was concerned the big guy in white spotted her.

Somebody had chalked the First and Fourth Amendments onto the ground, and plenty of people stopped to check it out in front of us.

It was a great way to get candid pics.

I knew I could hear bagpipes…

Don’t worry, I gave him a Dollar or two.

With that, we were knackered – heading back to Brooklyn to get food and pack.

I’ll leave you with this beautiful view from the aptly named ‘Sunset Park’.

Bye for now New York.

All shot on either a Leica M Typ 240 with (deceased) Canon 50mm f1.2, or a Sony RX100.
