New York City

The first time I visited NYC I feel in love. I was immediately hooked by the energy, speed and excitement that constantly flows through the streets. Like everyone else who wanders the great city, I got lost, but enjoyed every minute of it. I was 16 on that first trip and I promised myself I’d live there one day. Sure enough, I did. I spent the best part of 4 years living in and around NYC with my beautiful wife. Weather permitting, most weekends I’d travel around on my bike with a camera and play tourist. Nothing like being a tourist in your own city. This is a collection of a few of my favourite images from my time in NYC.
