A New York State of Mind

NY-Mind

I’ve had New York on my mind lately as my wife wants to attend a writing conference there in February.  Although I would not be attending the conference, I would look forward to meeting with other members of Monochromia and doing a bit of photography in the city.  My last visit was in July of 2011 and I had only five hours to take in as much as possible.  This time I would have several days to explore and, hopefully, have knowledgeable guides to show me around…hint, hint!

It sounds ludicrous to say that I stumbled upon one of New York City’s iconic buildings, but that’s how it felt. I was part of a group taking a photo walk around the city, and had no idea we were near the Flat Iron building until we were standing in front of the pointy end of it. I wanted to record it in some way, but was a loss how to do that under the circumstances. Fortunately a woman stopped at just the right time and in just the right place, and the image was made.
