These are beaut! I especially like the one of the mannequin tattoo artist and the statue of liberty from the perspective you take it. It seems like such an original shot of an iconic statue.

Somehow your black and white snaps say more than the color ones.

I adore the bridge - it's
extremely powerful with your
angles and has such a force about
it...
these are all so evocative and
the horse drawn carriage one is
timeless...gives me goosebumps!!

Lorena said...

i like the horse one because it's right behind the car. the bridge, i was on those tour buses, that was my angle and explains the blurr :) thank you.

New York, New York, I've never been too, looks so mysterious, enigmatic and sexy through your camera.
this is the NY i would love to be in one day
great work!

Seeing New York in black and white is quite unexpected. Gives it a romantic, sort of Parisian flavour. Beautiful pictures of a park, and the bridge is very special too.

Luanne said...

looove these pictures! you have an eye for beauty...

I agree with benjamin about the parisian flavour that your photos carry. I especially love the park photos, and the one with the horse in the street. looks so classic!

What I love about the monochromatic effect is how much it makes the photos interactive. It leaves the colors to the imagination... The pictures seem to hide something. That element gives it more depth :)

oh, and I'd just like to add that after some glances, the statue of liberty seems to be in the middle of a vast, green field... :)
