High Line in B&W

View-from-the-High-Line-June-21-2014-High-Line14

I went for a  walk with friends on the High Line in NYC last Saturday and was able to capture a few shots of the roads and spaces between buildings.  The light and shadows that come into play are really spectacular.  If you have never been to the High Line, I strongly recommend you put it on your list of places to see when you are in New York City.  It runs between 30th Street and Gansevoort Street for 20 blocks or 1-1/2 miles.  There is a great documentary on it on PBS Treasures of New York that you have to see.  It is such a wonderful way to see the city.  The High Line is my favorite place in NYC.

Both images were shot with my Fuji x100s and were processed in CaptureOne, Photoshop and Nik Color Efex.  I really like playing with the low key filter in Nik.  It just really brings in this wonderful contrast.

  1. It’s one of the few places left in Manhattan where you still can see the”cracks of the city”. The high line is the perfect way to see them, but the high line is also the cause that they are disappearing. So, it’s a very good thing that you have made such very good proof of them to last!
