New York City.


"Cars whiz around Columbus Circle as rush hour begins in New York City, New York Thursday, December 2, 2010."

I’m told that when I saw New York City for the first time as a little boy, I looked out the window and said something along the lines of, “What is this pile of junk?”

Obviously, my thoughts have changed since then.

Yesterday I was sent to New York City to speak on a panel for Goucher College. The reception was at the Museum of Arts and Design in Columbus Circle.

Amidst the crazy schedule I had, I found a few moments to walk through the streets with my camera. I wish I could have stayed out there and shot all night. The city is so alive. It’s got an energy that I sometimes feel Baltimore lacks.

So, I take it back. New York City is definitely not a pile of junk.
