NYC Photography (Non street)

Sunday Wanderings

I had been craving sushi a lot lately (it’s one of my favorite foods), so I decided to go to Sugarfish.  I still can’t bring myself to take pictures of my food in crowded restaurants.  I mean, I did it in Italy but somehow it doesn’t seem to count when you’re on vacation.  Also, I had Esther with me so I didn’t notice if people were actually staring at me.  Either way, I didn’t take pictures at Sugarfish but I took quite a few when I went walking after lunch.

That is a very interesting bag.  I wonder where she even found it.  It is kind of cool but only someone her age could get away with something like that.  I’ve seen food inspired necklaces or even t-shirts with food on them, but never a purse in the shape of food. That really is kind of interesting.

I just found it funny how everyone was on their cell phones and they were standing a few feet apart from each other.  I don’t think they all knew each other.  I’m not even going to criticize.  I’m on my cell phone most of the time when I’m outside.  

 

 

 

This was a few doors down from Sugarfish if I remember correctly.  I just liked the symmetry of the whole scene.  I wonder if they did it that way on purpose or if it was just a “happy accident” as Bob Ross would say.

I find taking pictures of buildings, scenery, etc. much more relaxing and interesting than taking pictures of people.  Unfortunately in big cities you always have at least one person in your shot whether you want them there or not.  Don’t get me wrong, I like looking at street photography style pictures that other people have taken, but as far as taking them myself, it’s just not worth the aggravation, either from curious people wanting to talk or paranoid people wanting to start something.

There were lots of interesting details the closer you looked.

I love buildings like this.  I can’t explain why.  I wasn’t even sure what this was called, though I had an idea, so I had to look it up.  As far as I can tell, it’s called creeping ivy but I could be mistaken.

I can’t even imagine having this kind of money.  Don’t get me wrong. It would be nice.  Can you imagine coming home and walking through this door every night?  It must be like a fairy tale.  Anytime somebody says money doesn’t make you happy it always reminds me of that line from How To Marry A Millionaire when Lauren Bacall’s character Schatze is talking with Tom and he says something like “Do you think dough automatically makes you happy?” and Schatze says “No, but it doesn’t automatically depress me either.”   😀 

 

 

 

 

 

Finally we have what I consider to be my shot of the day.  I like to try and get lost on purpose so that I can come across new things.  How freaking cool is this building?  If only I could always see things this interesting when I go out walking with my camera.  Most of the time it’s because I find myself walking the exact same way that I always do.  I need to switch up the routine a bit. 35mm, angels, architectural photography, knights in armor, no people shots, NYC, outside wall lanterns, Sony a7Rii, symmetry, white stone

Speaking of switching things up a bit, I’ll be posting a recipe inspired by my Aunt Tishi who was an amazing cook.  Seriously.  The stuffed mushrooms recipe that I’ll be posting on Wednesday was done by memory and I think I came pretty close to how she used to make them. When my aunt was alive I never even liked mushrooms but her stuffed mushrooms were so good that I could not stop eating them.  So if you like my recipe posts (crap as the pictures may be) check back on Wednesday.  I’ll play around with things and see if I can insert a printable PDF.
