NYC #3 / Minimal and Architecture

New York, and Manhattan on top, is well-known for its numerous buildings, towers, skyscrapers. These constructions have shaped the city over the course of the years and New York’s architecture is now of the main symbol of the town, the number one reason why thousands of tourists come to visit its streets and various districts.

Although I mostly took picture of modern buildings (some of them still being under construction at the moment), the city offers a variety of different styles, from Art Deco, with the iconic Chrysler Building, to minimalism, with the brand new 432 Park Ave.

For Architecture, I realized that my Minolta MD Rokkor 135mm f/2.8 did the job perfectly, as it enabled me to get close-up shots of my “subjects” without needing to crop in post-production.

The Guggenheim Museum is a masterpiece of Architecture, one of the New York’s symbols. The building itself is majestic and seems to be floating in the air, the exhibition inside was, to my mind, quite disappointing though.
