Next up, the Big Apple. While I have sailed in and out of New York harbor on a number of occasions, it is always a magical moment. Seeing the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island always makes you imagine what our ancestors thought as they left their homes, families, and identities behind to build a new life and country.
We spent the day photographing Grand Central Station (you need to get a permit to use a tripod and professional gear), the New York Public Library, and Times Square. It was hot and crowded.
The sunset departure was a pleasant change of pace. And while the sunset wasn't a particularly lovely one, it did provide a few interesting moments of light.
