Pic of the Week – New York City

The best way to soak in New York City  is on foot. This “point of view” shot of my family taking a walk through Times Square is busy and colourful, and you can see their heads turning to look. We knew we looked liked tourists but thankfully so did most of the other people!

I raised the camera high to make a point of their perspective. The idea is to give the viewer a feel of what it would be like to be that person in the foreground of the picture. It’s a journalistic-style image with frozen movement and it documents a moment in quite flat light. It’s not my usual style of photography but Times Square is not my usual style of location.

New York City Times Square Point of View shot on Falcondale Life blog. A perspective on what it is like to walk through this busy and vibrant city.

The Judging a Photograph series will return after the school holidays.

    I used to go to New York with work each year, looking at this photo I miss the big city.

    NYC is one of my favourite places, I can never get enough of it! Clever picture – it’s hard to get a sense of Times Square in 1 photo, and you’ve managed it! #mysundayphots

    Wow, it’s spectacular! You can see for miles. I would love to go to New York, but I have a fear of flying, so not sure I will ever make it there.
