Happy New Year from Times Square

Times Square #1 - New York, New York

Times Square #1 – New York, New York

I can’t think of a better place to ring in the New Year. I’m talking about Times Square of course. This is where they drop the famous crystal ball in New York City. I took these photos a year ago when, you might recall, I went to the east coast on a winter vacation.

This may be the ultimate spot for a night-time urban photographer like me, at least in the United States. Practically every surface is glowing, animated or blaring an announcement.

Take a look at the first photo. See the Toshiba sign at the top of the center building? Do you see the small glowing 2013? You can click on the photo to see a larger version. In less that 10 hours, 100s of thousands of people will be staring at an animated ball that magically increments this number to 2014.

I started my tour around 47th Street, looking north.

I walked south and snapped different angles of the famous Time Square landmark on 43rd Street. I used the Olympus E-PM2 with the Panasonic 14mm lens plus wide-angle adapter. It gave me a 22mm equivalent view.

Finally, a big thank you to you, the viewers from around the world. Like Times Square, nicknamed “The Crossroads of the world”, I’m happy that I’m sort of a virtual crossroad that hopefully has entertained and even helped you in some way. I hope you have a happy, healthy and prosperous 2014.
