New York, a city I really must visit more often. On a recent business trip I decided to extend my stay through the weekend for more inspiration, shopping, eating, and just exploring this amazing town!

Below are some pics my fiancé took while in NYC. He’s a wonderful photographer and together we have a great eye and make a great creative team. Even though we have some elaborate cameras for professional work, the following pictures were taken with a small handheld in order to capture the essence of the moment. All night and indoor shots were taken with no flash, but simply with open shutter exposure.

These are some of the photos we took of the city, what inspires us, and messages we saw throughout the city.        New York  . . . . . what are you trying to tell us??
