New York City
New York City is one of our favorite places. I did most of my purposeful shooting there in my early visits in the Aughts. Our recent visits have mostly been about museums and dining, but I take my camera along just in case.
We usually visit New York in January or August when the hotels are less expensive, so that has a bearing on the scenes you see here. Some of these previously appeared on the old Shuttercity photo-sharing site and others on my blog — the rest were scanned specifically for this gallery. I reprocessed all of them for optimal display on this site.

Not to tip the scales, but my personal favorites here are probably Celebrating Liberty, Future Psychic and Power Lunch. Thanks to artist/curator Sally Wood Winslow, I was able to exhibit Power Lunch at the High Falls Visitor Center in Rochester, NY, a showcase for local artists back in the day. (Sadly, the center closed in 2013.)
By the way, I wonder if any viewer of Posers considered the possibility that the statue was emulating the woman…
