Hudson River Greenway with Ming

Written by Friends, Photography

I met with Ming 2 days ago and he invited me to his job over lunch. We met up around 1pm in his Cafe on Cedar Street. As promised he had a peach iced tea waiting for me. Very refreshing. We each grabbed lunch and headed over to the Hudson River Greenway (just north west of Battery Park). The temperature was a bit warm, but with the passing breezes it was manageable.

After lunch I decided to take a shot of the sky with the polarizing filter. I then thought I would explain some of the camera functions to Ming. He then started snapping some pictures. The fire hydrant image was one of his favorites. I explained to him how sometimes you might snap this one image which you feel is that special little one.

We then walked north along the greenway and snapped some images. We stopped by the Irish Hunger Memorial. It was there where I began snapping images I felt were special. I loved how the walls outlined out silhouettes. We ended our day by laying in the grass on pier 83 (24th Street). Ming snapped some final “creep mode” shots and we slowly ended the day.

P.S. Thanks to the MTA for making “slowly” a reality on the stalling “E” train.
