  1. I used to work in that area. You captured the shapes superbly!

  2. I love the serenity. It’s not what I equate with New York. I don’t know the city at all, except through photographs. I’d love to include this in one of my future walks, if you wouldn’t mind, Jane? ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. My favorite is the laid back, relaxed person on the bench with the skyline in the background. Looks like it might just be possible to relax in NY? O_o

  8. You’re bringing back memories, Jane! I used to work near there and many times I walked over after work to de-stress (not in the winter!). It’s a great place to photograph, too, between all the glass and the water vistas. “Branches” is my favorite!

  9. Such a delight to see your amazing work, Jane

  10. Loved the piers Jane – and you definitely did the Oculus and Calatrava justice. If only it weren’t wedged in the middle of of of the such a busy and crowded area.

    • Thanks, Tina. It’s difficult to get a sense of it all in that area and there are more buildings going up all around it. Between that and the High Line it’s quite astounding.
