It’s almost impossible to capture New York with the colour yellow. Even though New York is known by the colours of their flag I think the yellow is the one that people associate with New York City. Of course I’m talking about the yellow cabs here. In many of my photographs you’ll see a yellow dot somewhere in the background, because they are really everywhere. And at night they really rule the streets so I thought it would be nice opportunity to capture a nice one without too many traffic surrounding it.
One of the characteristics of the New York skyline are of course the old water torens on top of the buildings, counting nearly 20,000 in the whole city. In my opinion they add that old-fashioned look and feel when watching the skyline and create that interesting contrast with the modern architecture of the latest skyscrapers.
One the most characteristics on the streets of New York are the fire escapes ….which I really like and even prefer over the modern architecture. Funny story but when I first visited New York I just had to chill on the fire escape and enjoy the view…and so I did, bought some burgers and a coke sat down and just enjoyed the sounds of this beautiful city.
Another nice detail of New York is the fruit sold on the streets. I have to say it is of good quality however fruit in general is quite expensive in New York.
