Manhattan's sheer verticality had the biggest impact on me. Seriously - my neck was as sore as my feet, and that's saying a lot. You could easily tell the tourists from the residents by who was looking up, and who was looking down. There is just so much to absorb, visually - and you'll miss half of it no matter where you look.
I loved how seamlessly the old, intricate buildings co-habitated with the sleek, new skyscrapers. A great study in texture and scale and density. I love how small the people look in all of my photos, and how their seemingly tidal movements contrast the buildings' immense solidity. And yet the whole city vibrates. Far above you, and far below you.
