Visiting the High Line

We were so blessed with a warm, sunny day last Saturday and I thoroughly enjoyed strolling New York City's newest attraction, the High Line, with my brilliant and successful daughter, Kiryn. A city girl who resides in Brooklyn, Kiryn loves accessing all that the Big Apple has to offer.  I am just beginning to realize that I am leaving behind many wonderful places that I have not yet experienced. But, that's what coming back and visiting will accomplish for me in the future.



Check out the High Line's website for a more organic view of what exactly it is. In a nutshell,
it's a spectacular public park built on an elevated railway along 16th- 34th streets on Manhattan’s West Side.  Their website and blog do a whole lot more about telling it's story, but I will say it was a treasure of a find and a place I would like to go back to again and again.

Even when you are packing like crazy and getting ready for a big move, it's important to take time to grab a few shots. I had a lot of fun using my new 70-200mm lens on this trip. It was a challenge because it brought things in so close, but it's great to be challenged. Good things come from it, like this.
Keep shooting, friends.  Happy trails!
