Boston & New York City Skylines

Today features two of the most recognizable skylines in the United States.  Above you can see the Prudential Building and the Hancock Tower with the Charles River in the foreground.

Below, you can see a beautiful sunset on the facades of the Upper East Side overlooking Central Park in Manhattan.  Two beautiful cities with incredibly rich history, both overlooking beautiful natural settings. Happy Summer to everyone!

The Apple Store | 5th Avenue NYC

Today’s post is in honor of the iPhone 4 that should arrive sometime during the day today…a day earlier than the initially anticipated arrival on the 24th.

In our New York City adventure on Friday, we stopped for a quick snapshot of “the Cube” – aka the Apple Store on 5th Avenue.  The store isn’t all that dissimilar from other Apple stores you’ve probably been to, other than the fact that the real estate was probably ridiculously expensive, and the store is underground with an attractive (and very Apple) glassy exterior.  Looking forward to the new toy!

There Will Soon Be A Mrs. Daily Portsmouth

I am very happy to announce to everyone that I spent a wonderful day in New York City on Friday with an amazing & lovely woman, Ms. Stephanie Cortes – out on assignment to capture some photos of the city.  I’m even more happy to announce that Ms. Stephanie Cortes will soon be Mrs. Stephanie Cohen….or as I’ve joked, Mrs. Daily Portsmouth!!

When we travel – we tend to do a cute & memorable photo like this in iconic places.  Without getting too far into the story, let’s just say it was a perfect day for a walk around the city to do some shooting…and a wonderful day for a great surprise.  Having grown up in/around NYC, the Brooklyn Bridge was a particularly special place for Steph – and one where we hadn’t done a shot yet.  We had done a test shot, that I pretended not to like and made her come review before suggesting taking another one.  In this photo (the second attempt), she had absolutely no idea what I was doing as her eyes were closed….I had her come back to check out the photo on the camera’s screen when she spotted something out of the ordinary….the rest is history.

The Lincoln Tunnel & Streets of New York City

To my loyal Portsmouth followers…thanks for visiting today and allowing me to humor you with another guest city post…Portsmouth will return tomorrow!

On the way into New York City on New Year’s Day, we took the Lincoln Tunnel…which was pleasantly quiet thanks to everyone having the day off from work. After we parked near our destination for dinner on the Upper West Side, I had to run and get some cash from an ATM when I saw the newsstand and the characters below, and had to snap a shot.

New York City by Night (and Snow)

Today’s post features two of Manhattan’s iconic buildings. Above the Chrysler Building can be seen looming over the streetscape, illuminated by the street lamps and cabs all reflecting off the wet streets thanks to the evening’s flurries. Below, the Empire State Building is wearing its Christmas colors and illuminating the surrounding flurries in contrast to the dark streetscape below.

I rang in the new year with my sweetheart in the New York/New Jersey area. After getting dinner on New Year’s Day in the city with friends, I asked (pleaded) for a quick drive past some landmarks to snap a few shots. Always happy to have the chance to shoot!
