Yesterday I had the great pleasure to wander around New York City with some amazing people: Leanne Cole, Stacy Fisher, Robert Marsala, and Nicci Carrera. One of our stops was the New York Public Library – wow! If you have never been inside you need to add it to your bucket list. The architecture is inspiring and the people watching…entertaining. And if you are a lover of books…you’ll feel right at home.

What a great shot, I didn’t get that, I might have to go back, lol
Thanks so much! I think you were still in shock over the reading room being closed for renovation! 😉 I had to wait quite a while so that no one was on the steps! Have a wonderful evening! XO
Perfect, Robyn. How did you ever capture the peace and beauty…and isolation? I took several pictures of this angle years ago, and each one had at least a shadow of someone going up or down the stairs. It was never empty!
Thank you so very much, Marylin! I waited for quite a while to be sure there were no people/shadows! I’m not very good with being patient, but when I am, it always pays off! Have a wonderful weekend!
Thank you Sedge!!! Have a great weekend!
Really lovely image.
Thank you Harold! That means a lot!
Many thanks Francina! And I like your new Gravatar pic!
You’re welcome, Robyn, and thank you too for liking my selfie ! 🙂
Thanks so much Stacy! It was truly a wonderful day…and the time passed way too fast! I can’t wait to see what you captured! We were all one in the same yet so very different in how we saw the world around us! Awesomeness!!!
Part of the pleasure of going out with other photographers is to see the images that they capture…we were all in the same location, but each have brought back very different “visions” of what we found…which just add to the joy of creativity. Certainly was a great day in the city.
That is the best part,Robert! I can’t wait to see how you saw the places we visited!
I have to figure out how to integrate them into my Blog…did another day in NYC with Leanne – toured Riverside park – another great day.
That is awesome Robert! So glad you had a second great day! Hoping you figure out how to integrate the photos soon! By the way, have you been to the State Penitentiary in Philadelphia? If not, you’d love it! I did a whole series of it on my blog. I love your abandoned buildings work! Have a fabulous weekend!
Thanks and Yes, I did ESP and Pennhurst one weekend last year – they both were great photo explores.
So glad you like it Rabirius!!
Well done! So fun to meet and shoot with you.
Thank you Nicci! Have a fabulous day!
Love this shot Robyn and this place is indeed gorgeous 🙂
Thank you Joe! I could have spent an entire day in the library…so intriguing.
I remember seeing you shooting this, Robyn. So wonderful to see the outcome. It’s wonderful! I really like that you can see the words “New York City Library” etched in the wall.
Such an incredibly fun day. Thanks for making the trip in. You probably spent as much time driving back and forth as you did in the city 😉 But it was wonderful to meet you! Like the rest of our merry group, I’m looking forward to seeing what else you captured! I’ve yet to upload my images from my camera … and I’m off for another 5 days tomorrow … so it will be a bit of time before I can get to mine.
Libraries are some of my favorite places. Thanks for the share.
Me too Don!
What an exciting day for you all and what a beautifully quiet spot you captured in this fine shot!
It was an exhilarating day Patti! Wish you could have joined us! Hope to see you soon!
