For today’s #FilmFriday, I thought I’d post a bit of a tour of what my Mamiya saw while in NYC.
First up, we have a shot from Central Park. I’ve always known that the park is enormous, but we were still amazed at how much space is dedicated to this beautiful spot.
On the left is a shot from upper Manhattan just outside Central Park, and on the right is the classic view of the Manhattan bridge as seen from DUMBO.
After shooting sunrise with the gang of photographers I was fortunate enough to meet up with, we ended up at this little cafe in Brooklyn for breakfast. Great ham, egg, and cheese sandwich.
On the recommendation of Brian Matiash, we went to John’s Pizzeria for lunch. It was delicious – and I’m pretty sure it was that dude you see on the left who made our pies.
The Manhattan bridge from below, just after the sun came up.

Similar to yesterday’s shot, this was taken while leaning out of the clock at the top of Grand Central Terminal. Such an amazing experience.
Mike Olbinski staring up in awe at the awesomeness that is the Manhattan Bridge.
A long exposure of the lower Manhattan skyline from DUMBO as seen by my 5D MkII.
In the GCT clock tower there’s a small hatch in the roof that allows the view you see below of the Chrysler Building – pretty cool. On the right we have the Manhattan Bridge…again.
Another shot from Central Park – this one taken from atop Bethesda Terrace. We recognized this spot from a few movies.
Lastly, we have the clock that sits atop the central ticket booth on the floor of Grand Central Terminal.
I had such a great time in NYC and I’d love to be able to get back at some point in my life – 5 days just isn’t enough time to see it all.
