The Flat Iron Building – New York City


I just got back from a fantastic (if not cold) weekend in New York City. I was there as on a part interview\part photo exploration trip. Both went really well in my opinion. I’ve only just now started to look at the photos but I wanted to share this one. I know it’s been done to death and it’s nearly as ubiquitous as it is iconic, but it was still on my bucket list.

The weather didn’t want to cooperate, but when life hands you lemons….well you know the rest. Between some snow, rain, cold wind and artic temps, it wasn’t exactly a picture perfect photo weekend. I didn’t let it stop me though – I think I walked half of Manhattan going from one place to the next. I didn’t get every shot I wanted, but I got more than I can believe. It has to be one of the most photo-friendly places on the planet.

Looking forward to the next trip…once it warms up a little that is.

    Love how you included the foreground area Tom. Most shots of this building are of the building only! Well done!

      Thanks Jim – yeah shooting one of those “classic” places is tough because it’s been done 10,000,000,000 times.

      (oh that and I had to be that far back to get it all in the frame level…so that helped lol)

    Glad you had a productive weekend here Tom. Next time you swing by give me a holler.
