Built in 1903 this New York City landmark with its 44 platforms on 49 acres of underground is the largest of its kind in the world. Here my wide angle lens being put to the test capturing its cavernous Main Concourse, the center of Grand Central, at 275 feet in length a 120 feet wide and 125 feet high and is reportedly visited by 20 million plus people every year.

The Calm Before The Storm, New England, USA

I find the New England states in the North East of the US most attractive in the fall months. Our recent trip up to Newport unfortunately turned up soggy and not the best weather for enjoying fall foliage. However, Newport for me, never fails to enthrall no matter what time of the year maybe bar summer when the traffic just gets to me.

Leaving America in a hurry almost, right before the election! Not quite although it would be a good enough reason. Photographed in Newport, Rhode Island last weekend.

 

Scent Of A Rose

While testing an old manual Canon 55mm f/1.2 lens on a recently acquired Sony Nex-5T, my first foray into mirror less cameras, this rose in our garden seemed the only color around on a gloomy fall evening here on Long Island. I think the lens did a good wide open and manual photography brings me great joy specially shooting in monochrome.
