Nikola Tavelic Croatian Center 10/52

Remember when I said that you should turn around after one photograph because you never know what else is waiting to be captured?  Yesterday I was in New York City to hang out with Dave Wilson, Jesse Pafundi and Mark Garbowski.  Dave was working at the FIRST Robotics Competition New York City Regional which was held at the Jacob Javits Center.  We hung out with Dave for a while before heading off to explore the surrounding area.  Unfortunately there isn’t much to see near there, aside from tourist type things.

We eventually walked past the Nikola Tavelic Croatian Center just to walk back and photograph it.  Jesse and Mark went to the left side of the building while I stood across the street to capture it in its whole.

After shooting some brackets of the building I turned around to see the sun setting perfectly on this crane/truck/thing.  Always turn around!

After shooting the crane, I went across the street to see what Jesse and Mark were shooting – and then it was shadow time.  Join me on Facebook to see some of our Shadow Fun.

It was great meeting Dave and Jesse for the first time and hanging out with Mark again.  Good times were had.  Unfortunately Brian couldn’t make the trip due to the horrible accident on I-95.

Thanks for reading and happy shooting,

  1. I almost didn’t notice the tiltiness on the crane. Subtle and nicely done.

  2. Looks like I may wait a while to process this Croatian shot after both of you posted it today!

    1. It’s always fun to see how other photographers capture the same scene
