Week forty-five

= MANHATTAN FROM BROOKLYN =

In my stay in NYC I had the opportunity to see the skyline of Manhattan from the west (on my way to Buffalo), from the south (ferry to Staten Island) and from the east (Brooklyn), and I must conclude that, for me, there’s no better view than the one from Brooklyn.

The second picture was taken without tripod despite having taken a tripod with me. The reason was that it was too weak for the lens I was using, and that reminds me that some day I’ll have to rethink how many gear I take with me on my vacations… I ended up with a huge cervical pain and, even so, I missed some equipment! My conclusion is: If the trip is not photography oriented, bring the minimum possible equipment. Maybe a mirrorless camera would be the best option for a photography addict on vacation… ;-P
