Photography: Columbus Circle

A few weeks ago, I went on my first outing with a meetup group called NYC Photo Treks. We went to Columbus Circle and Central Park. I wish it hadn’t been so overcast, but I got some great shots!

This steel globe on the north side of the Circle is in front of, well, Trump International Hotel and Tower. I was trying to let the globe lead your eye to the building.

This statue of Christopher Columbus is by the sculptor Gaetano Russo.

This winged boy holding a globe at the base of the statue pays homage to global exploration.

Columbus Circle has a few fountains, so I went a little nuts trying to get good pictures of the water. By cranking up my shutter speed and opening up the aperture, I was able to get some stop action shots (as seen here and in the pic below).

I hope you enjoyed these! I have more from Central Park, which I will post this week. I also did a trek to The Eldridge Street Synagogue and Museum on NYC’s Lower East Side and NYC’s Chinatown. I’ll be posting those, too!

‘This year, I’m doing the Eyecandy Project 52 photography challenge. Every week, we have to take a picture inspired by a prompt, such as From Above. Some prompts are relevant to the time of year, some are more evergreen. I’ll post my more successful efforts here about once a quarter. Check out the Q1 highlights here and the best of Q2 here.
