  1. These are wonderful, Jane. Makes me sorry I dislike being in a city, any city much less one as huge as NYC, as I do. I am sure that you are familiar with Jay Maisel and like him you’ve shown that there are endless possibilities there. And, as always, your found some perfect quotes to accompany the fine photography.

    You must be in a NY State of Mind.

  4. Great blog and images Jane. New York looks amazing and I always see it on my Laptop when I am watching a movie so yeah, one day I wish to visit this great city of America🇺🇸

  5. Each photo is so strong it is hard to single out any one, though I love how in ‘A Tree Grows in NY’ each reflective framed window becomes a work of art in its own right.
    The Arbus quote is fascinating – I am pondering how taking a photograph can at times feel like a surreptitious act of stealing (and whether that is delicious or not!). (Perhaps that we say ‘taking’ a photograph rather than ‘making’ a photograph reinforces the point?)

  6. This is a wonderful set Jane! I love so many of them. ‘Water Tower’ is a strong opener … what a great vantage point with city lights near and far. ‘Window Reflections is fabulous. I love the bright colorful compartments … like a shadow box! ‘A Tree Grows in NY’ was a great find. The geometry of the building along with the curved branch create a great contrast.

  7. The views you captured of the city lights at night are brilliant. However, i love the your more abstract images of the Gehry and Oculus. Well done, Jane … and have a bountiful Thanksgiving week.

  10. The Arbus quote is a real surprise (though maybe not so much when I think of what she’s known for photographing) and I love the Didion quote. But most of all I love your love for the city. 😉 It certainly shows! I’ve photographed that Gehry building, too, so I love your take on it. What a nice juxtaposition. The colors and details in the first photo are wonderfully alive. Seeing the second one makes me wonder how they could have both been made from the same place, assuming you made them from where you stayed. But maybe not. And the skyline has changed so much. Night windows does what the first photo does, only even more so – it really turns on that curiosity switch and makes you wonder about all those lives. “Window Reflection” does that, too. The Oculus photo provides a nice counterpoint to all the busyness of the night photos. The curving branch may actually be my favorite, partly because it looks so familiar: that intersection of nature and the built environment that I always have loved to see in cities. Perfectly composed! That little building with the white car in front around the corner from the office building – those older, small buildings are always a relief, aren’t they? The Highline image has that depth that always pulls you through NYC scenes. “Goodnight America” or Goodnight New Jersey? 😉 Great work, Jane!

  16. Your photos capture the vibrancy and energy of New York so well, yet my favourite I think is the early morning shot, the most peaceful of them. I also love ‘Gehry and Lamppost’, ‘Chili Cheese, Please’ and the tree (a shame it wasn’t in Brooklyn!)
