Black, White, & Seen in NYC

While digging through some old photo files, I came across some that were taken with my old point and shoot camera.

While living in New York City, I found many free things to do (believe it or not). My absolute favorite thing to do was to take off on foot and just explore. Some days I would just walk a different direction on the same street or on the other side of the block. Something so simple can create a completely different experience in a city so rich with life. There was no way to predict what you may see. This series is focused on black and white art found random places throughout NYC.

This photo was taken on one of my day walks. I'm not sure the exact location of where this was, but it was painted on the side of a wall somewhere in lower Manhattan. It struck my attention and had to get a shot. Looking back, I'm so glad I did. I get so much inspiration from this photo.

Walking with friends, on a beautiful day in lower Manhattan, I remembered why I would never leave home without my camera. Amazing sidewalk art that appears out of nowhere. Truly amazing talent.

One of my absolute favorite works of art. I'm not sure why, but this wall was so amazing to me. It could not have been easy to produce this, and the emotion is so intense that the artist undoubtedly had reason behind its creation.

I have so many photos of different things I have experienced during travels. These files in particular are from the time I spent in NYC and I have many more. Did this series bring you inspiration? Would you like to see other series? Architecture and other captures? I would love to hear your feedback on this posting as well as if you are interested in others like this.
