rainy morning reflections

I was early for a meeting yesterday morning so I decided to walk through Times Square to kill a little time. You should know that 8:00 in the morning is pretty much the only time I will walk through this neighborhood if I have any say about it. It's just too crowded with tourists and business traffic any other time of the day! But in the morning, especially a rainy morning, it's kind of nice.

Reflections of times square

At one point I found myself behind these two lovely tourists. They were speaking to each other in a language foreign to my ear, looking up, pointing, and taking pictures with a look of wonder and amazement on their faces.


They seemed to be having a nice time. Awwww...


It made me long for a vacation to a place far, far away!

Linking up today with Ankia at Pasando for her weekly phonography meme. All of these photos were taken with my iPhone and processed with camera+ and diptic.

And with the ladies at Communal Global...

These are beautiful shots, ever since I was a child I have loved pictures of rainy city streets and these rock. Maybe one day I will visit your city on a rainy day and my husband and I will be the tourist you capture with your camera. Thank you for sharing, these are magical.

Wow! That grey sky really makes all those lights seem even more vibrant! So nice, U.M.!

I have only been there as a tourist and have to say it is an impressive place because it is teeming with people! It did give me a feeling of being on a wave in a sea of humanity! I love the colors your captured...

Love seeing these shots. Unfortunately I've only been to TS as a tourist and WAY too crowded.
My fave is that 3rd image of the brilliant colors in reflection.

I love it. This is why I follow your blog. I have dreams of NYC linked by a bridge to San Francisco and I just walk across the bridge...

What beautiful and colourful reflections. I've never been to the USA but I would love to do hdr shots from Times Square. Thanks for popping over to my blog.

You have a CRAZY huge following!

today I saw a man standing in the street reading a book as he waited for the bus and I thought "urban muser would TOTALLY take this picture".

He was seriously standing in the middle of one lane. I am not exaggerating! ;)

rachel said...

so jealous of your location, I've never been to NYC, and hope to go someday...to see all the sights that I've only seen in pictures.
