June 5,6 New York, New York Revisited

What can I say about New York City, my birthplace? I spent the next two days shooting video and stills and visting an old friend, Tom Farrell. It was the most relaxing New York time I've had. I mean NY is not a relaxing place. There is a barrage of input, at times it becomes almost comedic. All I set out this trip to Manhattan was walk around and collect images of people and buildings. The amount of images available are endless here, at every turn. People are in abundance like no other place I've been. It is a symphony of humanity and architecture and art. Misery and wealth live on the same block. Wealth and poverty are close neighbors.
