Continuing another day exploring NYC. As I’ve mentioned, I was there for our workshop (Photography Unfolded). We started day 3 with sunrise in Hunter’s Point, which has nice views of Midtown. I prefer using the pavilion in South Waterfront Park to frame the city, particularly the Chrysler Building.

After breakfast, we headed back to Manhattan, spending some time photographing Grand Central. The hallways, with the arches and beautiful chandeliers, are one of my favorite areas to photograph in here.

Next, a stop by the Chrysler Building. I focused my attention on the details in the glass and steel above the entrance. Great Art Deco design.

Our next stop was a new addition this year, the Guggenheim Museum. Always a favorite to photograph. There are a number of areas to photograph here. Starting with some details outside.

Onto the main atrium, using the angles and curves of the ramp as a foreground element.

A tighter detail shot of the “V”-like area of that ramp and a very angular staircase hidden a bit in the back of the museum. I liked the peachy hues the lighting cast on the white walls.

Two centered, look up shots. The first, the ceiling in the gift shop. The second, the main atrium of the museum we’re most familiar with.

After a break for lunch, we headed to Heart Tower. Great geometry in the exterior and in the water feature inside.

A short uber ride away we spent some time at VIA57, a condo building by Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG). Another location with some great geometry. Plus the north side of the building had some nice light on it.

Our final stop of the day was another new location, Waterline Square by Rafael Viñoly. A residential development just north of VIA57 and along the Hudson River.
