Since the terrorist attacks on September 11th, 2001, the Empire State is also the tallest tower in Manhattan. The viewpoint I wanted for this image was to be above it: I wanted to be higher than Empire State. Some of the key ingredients: return airfare to New York, good weather, a sense of adventure, and a helicopter. Especially the latter added to the cost of creating this photograph, but the experience was very much worth it.
Notice the detail in the image – you’ll see the flatiron building in the same image, which, with any other angle, is next to impossible to do.
My photographic art comes with an invitation: which is to go see all the beauty this world has to offer for yourself. Get inspired to plan a trip to the Big Apple – or reminisce about a previous trip – with the images in my fine art photography gallery.Visit my New York City art gallery
