Drinking in New York

One of the recurring graffitis during my recent visit to New York was “In pursuit of magic” – here quite fittingly at the entrance to where Tin Pan Alley was located. Taken with my D700 and Nikon 20-35 2.8.

Les Miserales or Les Misérables?

Walking through Manhattan we passed this Loews’ theater by Union Square with a nice typo (which remained for the next two weeks). Taken with my Canon S95.
