Now for something different

Most of my city shots I go out of the way to not have people in the shots, I just feel funny taking shots of people and I am not sure why but that is something I am trying to work on, so for this post, I am going to do a post of shots on the streets of NYC all with people clearly in view, or for a couple of them the main subject of the post

Starting with this shot of a few people skating on the Ice Rink in Bryant Park, generally when I pass by it is in the early morning before it opens, but I decided to walk up there after lunch one day to get this shot

Do you Ice or Roller Skate?

I have tried it a few times but I spend more time sitting on the ground or ice or struggling to get up after falling I should say.

This next shot was taken when I was out taking shots of the festive windows inthe city, but As I saw the people crossing the road I thought of the Beatle Abbey Road shot and decided to take a shot of the people crossing the road, I know it is nothing like the famous Abbey Road photo but its what came to me to take this shot if that makes sense

Another shot on 5th Ave now in the past I would not have edited or shared this post because of the people in it, but when I think about it now as I am typing this NYC is always thriving with people and activity and getting shots without people is not really catching the feel of the city, so sinc e I only have two months left working inthe city I am going to make a real push to get more Street shots with people

And finishing off with another shot of Skaters in Bryant Park, I tried a different style of edit for this one

You're probably wise to stick to photographing skaters rather than lacing up yourself. Right after Christmas, I saw kids at the park by my house trying to roller skate for the first time. It made me want to go right out and get some skates, but my wife brought me back to my senses.

I like the crosswalk image. Last year, when the 50th anniversary remastered Abbey Road album came out, they closed a crossing area in Hollywood and put up large, two-sided posters of the Abbey Road crossing, minus the Beatles. I think they had a couple of them. People lined up for a chance to take pictures of themselves crossing like the Beatles.

!tip

Ohh yeah when I first came to NY I decided to learn roller skating and even took lessons in Central Park, I got over confident and headed down a steepish slope and crashed into a fence, well not so much into it, I very impressively did a jump and almost cleared the fence, almost being the key word and crashed and burned and decided after that skating of any form is not really for me lOL

That must have been so cool with the Abbey road images must have been so popular I bet

I didn’t learn about the Abbey Road photo-op until about an hour after it ended :-(

BTW, sounds you’re getting ready to retire soon. I’m counting down myself.

Yes End of Feb is my last working day, getting so close now, how much longer do you have?

Halloween is my target. I'm counting the days!

Thats not to far away good luck withit working out for you

Thanks I prefer watching skating not that good at doing it LOL

Ice-rink would not be complete without the skaters, nice touch on edit style bringing the photo more life. Oh I stay on Terra firma safer for everyone, even when young skating was something never accomplished.

Thanks, I wasnt sure what people would think of that edit :)

Yes I have tried both roller and Ice Skating, but was never good at either lOL

Perfection. Now I miss ice skating. Well I have only done it a couple of times but it was a lot of fun. Great bunch of photos. Really Love them.

I have only done it a couple of times myself but I spent more time on the ground than skating lOL

I used to ice skate quite a bit when the back piece of property my parents own would flood and then freeze. We used to do a lot of sledding back there too. It was always a fun time. Nice shots!

SOunds like fun, Skating whether ice or roller was something I never did well at myself

Oh yeah sometimes skating, we have an ice rink very close by, but I prefer to watch hockey.Great photography!

I like watching skating but can not skate at all I spend most of the time on the ice LOL

I have even had ice skates once. They have been a Christmas gift from my wife's family and I have used them once. After this I preferred to sit on a bench and watch the others, what has been better for my health ;)
The photos look like old postcards to me somehow, especially the second one.

That Abbey Road guy has too short hair, but his step looks good 😉


I would be quite !DERANGED if I didn't give you a !BEER and a !COFFEEA for this $trdo !ENGAGE 50 post 😉

Sounds like me on ice skates, I tried once and spend far to much time laying on the ice or struggling to get back up LOL

———————————————————————————————————

I don't drink !BEER anymore and never have had hot drinks myself,which some may say is !DERANGED but I do share !COFFEEA` now I must pop to the !MARLIANS !shop soon to pick up odds and ends

Yes, for me it was just as you say - I could go straight forward and even make a very wide turn, but if anything was in my way I had a big problem ... so I gave my ice skates to a friend who loves them and who is still using them after so many years :)


To give a !DERANGED and a !BEER is an easy and simple way for me to say thank you for being nice, and giving an additional !COFFEEA means I thank you even more, but first I have to go to the !MARLIANS !shop and buy some 😉

For me it much more fun and less embarrassing watcher others skating :)

———————————————————————————————————

in days of old there was !COFFEEA and !BEER, but no internet of cell phones, nor a !MARLIANS !shop the kids of today would think that was quite !DERANGED

That's true and it is fun and exciting to wait for someone to fall down, as long as he does not get hurt, of course.


I might be a bit !DERANGED but not only I have a !BEER for you today, but also a !COFFEEA which costs only !ENGAGE 50 at the !MARLIANS !shop 😉

Yes indeed

———————————————————————————————————

in days of old there was !COFFEEA and !BEER, but no internet of cell phones, nor a !MARLIANS !shop the kids of today would think that was quite !DERANGED

Usually here the people have thick clothes on and at least the children wear helmets, so most accidents don't really hurt and watching them skating and fallin gcan be big entertainment 😉


I might be a bit !DERANGED but not only I have a !BEER for you today, but also a !COFFEEA which I have bought at the !MARLIANS !shop 😉

I dont think I have ever seen anyone skating with a helmet here but as it is winter thick clothes are common

———————————————————————————————————

In little town down a side street is the !DERANGED !shop of the !MARLIANS you can buy cold !BEER and warm !COFFEEA and other things you don't want to know what it is 😉
