No particular place to go

I had a few days in New York on my own and had some plans but mostly I wandered.

I loved my wanderings. Walking the streets and observing and absorbing the sites and sounds. I would head out with a vague direction in mind and see what I might discover on the way. New York is so hectic and crowded that it was really nice to find my own stillness in the city by watching and taking in all the new things.

Here are a few pics from my wanderings.

So many straight lines in New York

The best views are always from roof tops

Central Park and it feels like Manhattan is miles away, even though you’re right in it.

For a Londoner New York feels very closed in some how
