New York Cityscapes

Create | Bring Into Being

It's been a couple of years since I visited the Big Apple.  I am fortunate to have friends to stay with.

Vertical Living

Upon arrival, I always beeline for their roof.   The view contrasts mightily with the small New England town where I reside.


My favorite images were either multiple exposures or intentionally out of focus.

Postcard from the Roof

Though I once lived for a year in NYC,  I cannot now imagine living in such a densely populated area. My imagery reflects this shift of consciousness.

Tech Tips: Nikon D700, 24-70mm, ISO 200. Vertical Living and Postcard from the Roof are in-camera multiple exposures treated with Topaz Adjust, a plug-in for Photoshop CS4.  ©2010 John Nordell

Love your use of multiple exposure!

Thanks Anita. I see that you use a Nikon D300 - just go to the shooting menu and select the multiple exposure function, if you have not tried it...

I love the first one especially-Vertical Living! Has such a nice feel to it, reminds me of cubist art.

Dru - The cubist painters are a huge inspiration for me. Thanks for making that connection!
