Manhattan Skyline From Central Park


Early evening and I was not sure I wanted to photograph a ‘standard’ scene. But there were people taking photographs and I thought I better get off my high horse and take some shots.

Thoughts of Robert Frost’s The Road Not Taken that I wrote about elsewhere, come to mind as I write that.

Tech stuff:
Fuji X100s handheld
1/75th second
-1.3 exposure compensation
ISO 400

Had I not used exposure compensation, I doubt I could have recovered as much of the scene as I was able to capture.

    I have read your thoughts on the poem. It’s a poem most people feel applies to themselves, because of the reasons you first mentioned.


    1. The phrase ‘join the human race’ used to really get to me. Still does. 🙂
