A Spring Walk on the High Line

The High Line has been one of the most successful new projects I've seen in the City in a while.  It just never stops delivering a great experience.  Still under construction since it opened years ago - this west side park stretching from approximately 12th St to 30th St is going to expand again with the third section continuing on to 34th St soon.  Several new buildings are popping up all along the route as well as the very large new Whitney Museum construction.

 I decided to use my X-T1 and two lenses for my evening stroll.  I wanted to play with the XF10-24 and then have my XF56 later on as the light dropped.  The fast F/1.2 is of course an amazing asset in your photo bag.  I shot most of these images in the Miniature Advanced Filter mode.  All jpegs straight out of camera so little work had to be done in post.  Just download, edit and upload.
 Everyone likes to talk about the Standard Hotel and people seen naked in the windows - still no sightings while I was there.
 This art installation looks like a juice sales area - but when you take a closer look you see original creations of juices made with common items we live with.  The piece is called Skittles by Josh Kline - nice one.

 A quiet moment to work and contemplate.

 Construction is BOOMING around the High Line.  Explosive changes to the landscape.

When you pop on the XF56mm lens you instantly feel the power of your imagery have an uplift.  I know that's crazy to say - but try it and see.

I decided to try out de-focusing the lens to see what sort of patterns are formed.  Here is the transition in the image.  I really love the last one of just circles.
