Summer in the city is arguably my favourite yet (minus the humidity and skin scorching temperatures).

We have been so fortunate to have three of our nearest and dearest come to town to explore a New York summer with us.  My dad and his wife Maureen, came at the start of July to help us settle in and explore our new neighbourhood.  Then last week my brother, Sean, ventured over to help us tackle many of the items on our NYC tourist bucket list.

Jay walked in the door from an 8 day business trip in time for us to catch the sunset.   So I managed to wrangle him (with oodles of protests) to come out with me to try some of the things we have been learning in my photography elective.  He was a little uncomfortable being the focus of my attention for any length of time, but nonetheless we was a mildly willing participant and the sunset really steals the show anyway.

Next step: mastering flash so my night imagery doesn’t come out so dark.  Enjoy the view from Harlem as the sun sets over Jersey.
