Views from The High Line: #5

Contrasting the classical brick architecture with the Empire State Building in the background. I even snuck in a cross and an old, dirty water tank.

Below, fellow walkers on The High Line the morning I was up there.

Arriving at The High Line

One more shot of the Empire State Building, then, as I mentioned in the previous post, I will visit The High Line, which has become the biggest draw for tourist visiting Manhattan. The morning I made the walk it was grey and not too crowded. Actually, most of the tourists seemed to be speaking either French or some Asian language. I think there must have been a French tourist group that were

bussed there that morning. Rather than me attempting to explain what The High Line is and how it came about I hope you take a minute to check this link if you are not familiar with the project, which is still ongoing.

Empire State Encounter

I was walking towards Chelsea to find The Highline this particular morning. I was quite a ways from the Empire State Building, camera on my shoulder when, waiting for the pedestrian signal to change, an elderly woman standing next to me struck up a conversation. As we talked she noticed my camera and pack and insisted I walk back a block where there was a great place to view and shoot the Empire State Building. She was very insistent I see this particular spot so we walked and talked until we came upon the spot you see in the photo with the partial tree. I think her point was that shooting the building with a tree in the foreground would give a softer or less harsh glimpse of Manhattan; New York was more than steel, glass and cement. So, that is the story of the shot with the tree in it. She placed me right in a spot on the sidewalk that would catch the view she enjoyed sharing.
