High Line Details

After a very long wait due to the chip shortage I bought a NIKKOR Z MC 105mm f2-8 VR S lens for my Nikon Z7 camera. I love the lens. It is so much lighter than the micro lens one I use on my Nikon D750. I took it for its first test run to the High Line when I walked back home from B& H Camera and Video store at 34th Street. No edits necessary on these photographs.

Leroy Street

Near the Hudson River on Leroy Street is a new building. I stopped to photograph the door and tree. The doorman came out and told me not to take photographs. I told him it is legal to take photographs of places if you are standing on public property.

I threw in the two trees for extras.

For Thursday Doors December 9, 2021.

Manhattan Skyline

We went by Ferry from Battery Park City at Vesey Street for a photoshoot at Paulus Hook, Jersey City in November with Sierra Photo of New York City to photograph the moon over the Freedom Tower in Manhattan.

As the sky changed colors so did the light and color on the buildings in Manhattan.

We spent a lot of time waiting for the moon to peak out of the clouds. It finally did. I was amused by the moon creating a moonsicle on the antenna on top of the Freedom Tower.

NYC Doors

It’s been a while since I posted some doors for Thursday Doors. They are all in Manhattan.

Manhattan Doors

Two doors on West 25th Street and West 9th Street in Manhattan, New York.
The windows next to the 9th Street door was too good to pass up.
For today’s Thursday Doors.

North Central Park

The first set is from the Ravine and Butterfly Gardens in Central Park (map). A few of these gave me a bit of trouble to identify.

The second set of flowers are in the Conservatory Garden. I am stuck on the last two. Does anyone know what they are called?

A friend, Fritz, from the Butterfly Club in NYC helped me identify the red daisy like flower. It is Great Masterwort (Astrantia major ‘Rubra’).
