It has been a while since I’ve been back to New York City, but always find it a pleasure to get out and shoot a new view of the skyline. I had the pleasure of meeting up with good friend Mark Garbowski and he took me over to Gantry Plaza State Park which produced a wonderful view from Long Island City. I didn’t take my Canon 5D Mark III on this trip and left all the heavy equipment at home. I just brought my Fuji X-T1 mounted with a Newer Arca Swiss L-Bracket along with a 18-55mm f/2.8-4 and the 35mm f/1.4 Fuji lenses my small Gitzo Traveler 1542t Tripod. It was such a pleasure to fit everything into a small bag. It was such a pleasure walking around New York City with just a small bag. The nice thing about having the Fuji is the size and weight and you don’t mind carrying it and I found I would take more images and didn’t feel so obtrusive. It may have been me, but people just didn’t seem to notice me as much. I just looked like a standard tourist with a small point and shoot.
