fun architectural shots

The buildings in New York are amazing, and the blend of old and new is pretty seamless, I think. I love the way these next shots turned out. I don't know much about the buildings, but I like the photography.

I love the way half of the building has disappeared in the picture below. The reflective nature of the glass at that time of day was just breathtaking.

I just liked the shapes of this building, and if you watch the movie Confessions of a Shopaholic, most of the movie takes place here. Of course, I don't know if they filmed the movie here, but they use the exterior.

Another view from the Top of the Rock. It's amazing to me that there are so many buildings crammed into such a small amount of land.

Can you tell that we had a great time? SO great. There is an energy there that is just palpable and we are already planning to go back. Don't know when, but there is so much to see. We didn't go to any museums or historical sites, and we could have used another three weeks to see it all. I would love to actually stay in Midtown, at the Plaza and be in the middle of all of it, but our budget doesn't really allow for that. It may never allow for that, but a girl can dream, right?

I want to come on vacation with you. I think it would be an entirely new experience to see this city and others through your eyes. Great pics!

Your pictures are just gorgeous!

I want to go to NYC. So much!

I have not seen Confessions of a Shopaholic. It's in my netflix queue at the moment though...

I love all of your pictures, you did such a nice job of capturing your trip on film.
I'm jealous; I want to go to NYC.
