    wow. great lighting in this shot. I would love to visit your city, Karin.

  2. Fantastic pic k. It seems to capture the feel of NY. iPhones are brill.

  3. Mary Says:

    I really love this shot! Always good to have a camera (of whatever kind) in one’s hand!! iPhones really don’t do bad, I don’t think. I use mine all the time now….NEVER use any other cameras I own.

      Yes, the iPHone is now my preferred camera for sure. I think the new iPhone actually has an excellent camera on it, and I think there are apps you can get to make them better. I don’t have the apps, and my iPhone is an older one, but it still is okay. k.

    This is impressive – and how!

      It looks very nice. Lighting the building like that is rather new – they had it green all through the Christmas season and then were not lighting it till last night. I don’t know if you know New York, but the building sits right in the middle of Park Avenue with the traffic going through it, so it has a rather dramatic placement.

    Great shot. The blue building draws the eye. I must visit NYC

    • ManicDdaily Says:

      Certainly, it’s an interesting city. It feels more compact than London. Of course, there are all the outer boroughs – and there’s a lot to see – but for a tourist, much is in Manhattan which is relatively small.

    nice…cool shot for sure….the building is lit up blue…is there a reason or is this a weird effect? i miss your city…smiles.

    • ManicDdaily Says:

      I think the lights are supposed to be red white and blue, and at first I thought for MLK, but now I wonder if they are not related to the inauguration? I don’t know. Also, I should check – I think it’s probably a Helmsley thing and not a city intiative – I think Helmsley owns the building – at least it used to – remember, Leona? Who left a big estate to her dog, Trouble? I don’t know for sure who owns now. k.

  7. Ha–Leona Helmsley–that *is* a blast from the past. Always seemed perfectly sane to me. That’s a gorgeous shot, even though I pretty much am city-phobic. Lately I’ve actually started thinking where we live now, a twenty minute drive from a suburb of 80k people, most of whom are right wing republicans, is more than I want to handle. Taos NM is looking good.;_)

    • ManicDdaily Says:

      Ha. Taos sounds very nice.

    • ManicDdaily Says:

      I honestly have to say that the City always feels very safe to me. (Setting aside issues like terrorist attack.) I don’t know why exactly, but I’ve rarely felt frightened on the actual street. Sometimes in an apartment I guess, but not when walking around.

      Of course, you do see things some times that make you want to walk just a little bit faster! k.

    Born there~ stimulating city!

  9. that’s really cool. I’ve actually been thinking about New York a lot lately. Have some strange yen to adventure there. Googled restaurants, dreaming. Trip Advisor rates the Gramercy tavern as THE #1 in NY, NY. I’d give it a whirl! 🙂 And a suite above Central Park with a big granite tub and excellent room service. And all for FREE!!!! That would be nice indeed. 🙂


    • ManicDdaily Says:

      The FREE part would be pretty great. I’ve been to the Gramercy tavern but not for years. It was very nice. I can’t remember how I happened to go there – I know someone else was picking up the tab! (Ha!) All pretty funny. The great thing is that there are some cheaper interesting places – a lot of them – but much is also crazily expensive. Sigh. k.

    I ‘heart’ NYC!
