It doesn’t matter if your journey takes you away to some beautiful places. Coming back home and seeing THIS – priceless. That’s what makes New York so special – returning from a long trip I would not choose any other spot on the planet to be landing to in order to get home. It is hot, it is smelly, it is loud and often dirty, yet it is so … alive!  

A trip to a lovely place, a meal of fresh (????) oysters, and then being horribly sick from them forever – ah là là là! That’s why I will not tell where I went;). To knock somebody out for almost three weeks… that was one angry oyster I’d say!

So good to be back.


  1. Absolutely love this shot! Looking forward to following your blog!

  2. What a joy to see probably the very essence of your city and your return to it. Please have a wonderful start into the new week.

  3. Great shot! I like that you can see the ripples in the water too. Hope you're feeling better!

  4. To SFBakstad.
    Thank you! Seeing this in real life is absolutely breathtaking!

    To Robert.
    Thank you and yes, that is the beauty of living in your favorite place on Earth – you never wish you were coming home to somewhere else. No matter what splendor you have just seen across the ocean, in another part of the world - on every return you are filled with gratitude and renewed appreciation.

    To T.Becque.
    Thank you! This shot is such a post-card picture, but the view of sparkling Manhattan is what grounds you to this very moment: you know that this could mean only one place – New York.
