Leaving New York, never easy, in fact the last day in NYC was the only one without the sun. Pretty gloomy and gray (the day I left it was raining, so perfect timing I guess, despite of the cold obviously!). Rain was also sad considering that I was leaving. Anyway I dedicated the day to shopping thanking to the super patient Geneviève that brought me to a lot of places where I didn't buy basically anything! NYC is the place where you can do shopping for more than a week because there are to many things and places to choose from.
As the title says, in this city the photo opportunities are endless, so I decided to pair my Canon EOS R and the control ring mount adapter just with the Canon 50mm f/1.2, its wide aperture is perfect for quick shots and dark light conditions.
Having the chance to visit NYC many times I would dedicate one of these taking pictures in the subway for sure. So many different people, so many stories characterized by a unique atmosphere.
Well I can't say nothing but that this city is incredibly beautiful, crazy and full of life. It didn't impressed me immediately like I thought. But but as soon as I started to discover it I started to feel the vibes that a book or a movie can't give. At the same time while finding new places you realize how many others you are missing. The city fascinated me since I was a kid, the dream as a photographer now. See you soon NYC.
Yes, leaving New York, never easy, but now it's time for new adventures and trips around the world, so follow me on Instagram and get in touch if you need a portraits or a photo shooting before to see you in Venice with the new season!

I dedicated the fourth day of my trip to visit few areas of Brooklyn photography paradise, that actually would have deserved definitely more time. Brooklyn is huge, for real, and I could have easily spent a week wandering around!
So same equipment, my new Canon EOS R, the Canon 17-40mm f/4 . Obviously the amazing control ring mount adapter to explore Brooklyn starting from the bottom.
I've always wanted to see this place since I watched one of my favorite movies about basketball, "He got game" directed by Spike Lee, with Denzel Washington and the Nba superstar Ray Allen aka Jesus Shuttlesworth. Plus an amazing soundtrack by the Public Enemies.
Obviously November is not the best moment to be there because it's cold, the luna park is closed and there's not much fun around. But it was a beautiful day, super sunny with a blue sky and walking along the beach was pretty nice anyway!
After the walk I had lunch at Nathan's, the most famous hot dog chain in the US. He was a polish immigrant that opened first a small kiosk on the beach in Coney Island in 1916. The recipe of the hot dog was invented by his wife and know is one of the best in the world.
Coming back from Coney Island you can't but stop at the Brooklyn Heights, sitting on a bench to enjoy the beautiful view of Downtown Manhattan. After a small rest, a nice walk brings under the Brooklyn bridge and from there is definitely worth. Then go to Williamsburg, a fancy, beautiful, hipster neighborhood, not as much as Dumbo probably (sorry no IG picture with Manhattan Bridge behind). Here there are nice views of Manhattan as well, offering the chance for good pictures especially taking advantage of the sunset lights. Before to enjoy a deserved rest in a great place if you like beer!
The Brooklyn photography paradise is amazing also for other passions. I love craft beers and I tried their before but trying it here it's a completely different experience! The brewery is pretty big but incredibly cozy. The atmosphere is beautiful and the staff super nice even while waiting outside. They also offered a tour inside to talk about the history of the brewery and to show the machineries used to produce their beers. Obviously inside there's a wide choice of craft beers for a very good price (6$ almost all beers) being in one of the fanciest places in NYC.
It has been a long day, after dinner at Katz's Delicatessen (there's no need to describe that place!),
and more than two hours trip in the subway (yes, I discovered that the NYC subway could be incredibly annoying during the week end). I was ready to enjoy my last day in the most famous city in the world.
