  1. Oh my — you’re Flat­iron Build­ing pic­ture is sim­ply amaz­ing. It is my favourite build­ing in the world. I sat look­ing at it on New Year’s day and thought — god, has there ever been such an amaz­ing build­ing built since — wow, amaz­ing — well done.
    Ps. also love the pic of some­one tak­ing a pic of the sky­line from behind — great com­po­si­tion!

  2. I love New York. I’ve nev­er been and one day I would love to. See­ing pics like yours just make me wan­na see it even more. They’re so cool and I just pic­ture a long day in the city and still not hav­ing had enough when I go to bed that night. Great Job on the Pho­tog­ra­phy, Love It!
    — Vis­it my blog and leave com­ments, i’m new to word­press! x x x

  3. Nice pho­tos, I espe­cial­ly like 2 — the one in front of the mur­al and the oth­er of the skate­board as its being car­ried. The ones of you catch­ing air are pret­ty sick too though!

  4. Love the blog head­er — and the
    tun­nel shot. Any image manip­u­la­tion
    on that last one?

    Check out my Bohemi­ans at Large
    Posts for some legal — and slight­ly
    less legal forms of goril­la art.

  5. Won­der­ful pho­tog­ra­phy! You real­ly keep the life in things.

    I do pho­tog­ra­phy but I don’t have much on my WP site. I’ve been adding pics to my FB site called Lore­na Koran Pho­tog­ra­phy Etc. and I add a lot to my reg­u­lar FB page under my name Lori K Hobbs.

    I would love ot spend time in NY one day and of course go across the Atlantic and snap away there too.

  6. Just last night we were hav­ing our din­ner at the bay­walk, and one thing that spiced up our night and the place of course were the teens who parad­ed the long stretch of the ocean park doing all these incred­i­ble stunts with their skate­boards. And we were kind of puz­zled while watch­ing espe­cial­ly if their stunts seem to hurt them… We’ll nev­er be able to real­ize what ful­fill­ment skate­board­ing can give unless oth­er­wise we try it our­selves, but got no plans of try­ing. Lol! Great shots by the way! 😉

    1. New York City is an amaz­ing place for skate­board­ing! There is real­ly nop place quite like it. I am orig­i­nal­ly from Philadel­phia and to this day it is very ille­gal to skate most places. In New York frankly I think the Police just have bet­ter things to do.

      Thank you for check­ing out my work!

  7. Please encour­age skaters to con­fine their acro­bat­ics to skate parks. They do a lot of dam­age to curbs, park bench­es, steps and oth­er pub­lic areas when they do acro­bat­ic skate tricks out­side the ded­i­cat­ed facil­i­ties. Nice pics.

    1. Boo to that!
      Skate Parks are fun, but street skat­ing is where it all began! Not to men­tion there are not near­ly enough skate parks for all the kids that skate.
      There is noth­ing quite like skat­ing in the streets, and New York City is the best place in the world for it!
      I would strong­ly encour­age every­one to try it!!!!
      Get your self a nice wide board and some soft wheels and go slap­py grind some of those but­tery angle iron curbs in NYC!
      Then maybe you will under­stand.

      Thank you for the com­pli­ments on my work.

  8. WOW, this is fan­tas­tic! I’ve nev­er seen pho­tog­ra­phy quite like this. I always come across stuff like flow­ers and peo­ple, but not like skate­board­ing and build­ings. It’s amaz­ing!

  9. awe­some pho­tos. I work in the skate­board­ing indus­try, and love fresh per­spec­tives from the eyes of the ath­letes, both pros, ams, and those just out there to have fun. Nice work.

  10. Great pic­ture sto­ry. Think you will be in skate­board shape dur­ing Social Secu­ri­ty time. I am 82 and out run most young peo­ple in my fam­i­ly. They ran the fastest but I ran the longest. Keep up the good work young MAN!

  11. Beau­ti­ful. I can­not wait to trav­el the world with a cam­era and noth­ing else. No rush­ing, no work­ing, no need for imme­di­ate some­things. Just peace and pho­tog­ra­phy. Maybe some com­mu­ni­ca­tion with phone calls to loved ones. But oth­er than that, just liv­ing in the moment. I am so glad that still is some­thing peo­ple do.

  12. I feel myself get­ting old­er and fat­ter by the minute…I guess I should take up skate­board­ing to com­bat that. It’ll either keep me young or kill me…

    Awe­some pho­tos! 😉

  13. Beau­ti­ful shots! I shot the A cam­era on my video blog with a 5D and an Ex-1…they match up well!

    Do you have an inter­est in hav­ing your pho­tog­ra­phy fea­tured in oth­er blogs as adorn­ment to text if it links back to your blog page?
