Thanks so much, Karen! When I first took a okk at this photo, it made me a little dizzy, like I feel when I am looking up at all those tall buildings!

Ah, city life. Wouldn't go back there again. Especially to live and, really, not even to visit for very long. Excellent pov, Val.

Thanks Charlie :) I tend to become a little overwhelmed if I stay in NYC for long periods of time. A day trip is about all I can handle, lol!

I feel I have been transported in to an episode of NYPD Blue ... or maybe Cagney and Lacy ... with a little trip to Cheers. I have never been but i feel I know the place thanks to this picture.

Great city shot, hope you weren't stood in the road to take this.
4 years ago.
Valfal has replied to Yvette Chew
Thanks, Yvette! No, I wasn't standing out there, I was in the car when I photographed this scene. I think the shot came out as well as it did because the old VW Beetle I was riding in has a flat windshield, so reflections and glare were kept to a minimum. If I had been riding in a regular car, I could never have achieved taking this photo with the same clarity.

Thank you so much, Jon; I am really happy that I could capture this street as it looked to me at the time. I could not have done it except in a car with a flat windshield. It was a marvelous opportunity! :)
