NYC Photo Diary

New York
In Feb I had the best holiday of my lifetime! I went to NYC for just less than a week. My trip actually coincided with NYFW, and I ended up with some invites but stupidly I didn't go as I couldn't fit them into my touristy schedule. Idiot!

Initially it was meant to be a trip that me and my ex booked together, before he dumped me that is. But I ended up going with my best gal pal Nikhita and we had the best time celebrating Galentines in the Big Apple

I wanted to show you some of my images I shot during my trip and let you all know what we got up to whilst there

The first thing we did when landing was go to Long Island as I had booked in with an AMAZING artist over there to get a tattoo I had been after for at least 8 months. So we taxi'ed to Long Island before heading into Manhattan and our hotel. We stayed at the Roosevelt Hotel which was amazingly central to most things and we spent most of our holiday walking
New York
The next day, after having an early night after travelling and dealing with the 5 hour time difference, we woke up really early and decided to walk to the famous Times Square. It took us all of 10 minutes and when we got there Nikhita couldn't quite believe we were in Times Square

" Nikhita we are in Times Square!"
"No we aren't"
"Yes we are. There are lights and billboards everywhere"

"But this place is tiny. And where are the steps?!"
"erm.. over there"

"OMG WE ARE IN TIMES SQUARE OMGGGZZZ"

The inevitable shopping happened ASAP after taking all of the pictures and the selfies and we had lunch at the Hard Rock Cafe. As well as spent $240 in Sephora... oops

In the evening, we did a 15-20 minute walk down to the Empire State Building where we passed by the New York Public Library and Nikhita had a bit of a meltdown because of the fact some scene from Sex And The City was filmed there? I dno... I don't watch girly movies

We went to the 86th floor of the Empire State and just LOOK at the views and the NYC skyline

And because we felt like we hadn't done enough that day, sarcasm by the way as we had done LOADS, we went back to Times Square to experience it all at night

The buzz of the place is something I will never forget

Stupidly, on the coldest day NYC was having during our stay was the day we decided to attempt to walk 20 minutes to Central Park and look around Central Park

We saw the famous Love sculpture though and took some pics by it as well as stopped into every Starbucks on the walk. We ended up kinda giving up and got roped into someone on the street giving us a tour on his cycle driven carriage. We haggled his price down way cheaper than he wanted and we were covered in a leopard print blanket whilst being shown the sights around Central Park

After the coldest day, normally comes snow. Typical that THIS was the day we travelled out of Midtown Manhattan and experienced the 9/11 memorial and a cruise

However, experiencing the 9/11 memorial in the snow was chilling and haunting for many reasons and was extremely breath taking

The cruise was a bit of a dud in a way as it was so hard to see anything due to the weather. But I still managed to see good ol' Miss Liberty and take some snaps, as well as some pics of the Brooklyn Bridge

These were images all taken on my DSLR (Canon EOS 6D). I will have a seperate post of all the snaps I took on my phone, because yes, I took a lot of photos in New York

I loved every second of this holiday and I really did not want to leave. It felt so right to me and like I should call it my home. I already plan to save up to attempt to go in 2017 when they have warmer weather



Have you ever been to New York? Do you think my images help describe my experiences?

  4. I went to New York with uni in 2013 (we got to be there for Valentines)! The lectures had booked us onto the three hour cruise around the island, it was -12 that day and I was the stupid one who stayed out on the deck of the boat photographing everything. I ended up missing out on the last day as I had gotten flu. Hoping to go back next year around Christmas time to see all of the decorations.
