Optic 2017 Cruise

As part of the free Optic 2017 event held by B&H I went on the evening cruise around the tip of Manhattan. The 4-day event was fabulous—so many lectures and camera goodies to see it was overwhelming. The speakers were tops. If you want to see some of the lectures some were recorded. Thank you all at the B&H Event Space.

The weather was foggy and damp, so all my photographs were a flat gray. I added a few clouds to some of them in Photoshop.

New York harbor at night reminds me of when I returned to America in 1960 from London. I was a young teenager then. The view of the harbor and city lights was beautiful and romantic, but at the same time sad because I was so sad at  leaving my home in London.

    How neat to do that 4 day lecture series. Love the photos. The statue of Liberty with the sort of turbulent clouds says a lot to me!

    Fantastic photos of the NY harbor, Sherry, what a great cruise. I found the SofL especially stunning. You are lucky to be so close to wonderful B&H.
