An Edinburgh wedding photographer at yet another destination wedding? Well, if you’ve looked at the pictures first, you may be thinking that it was one of those weddings that I’m not allowed to show in any media of any kind, nor mention any names (of which I’ve had a few this year.) And I’m not going to tell you any more!
Suffice to say I have just returned from a few days in the Greatest City in the World (after Edinburgh) where I managed to spend some time with my friend Peggy. I haven’t been in NYC for 15 years so there was plenty for us to see and do and Peggy, a long term resident, was an excellent guide.
Photographically, I have a problem with the city. Almost every view is one I have seen before, whether on TV or in the cinema and I wanted to remember something different.
A piece of advice from a friend came to mind – “Always remember to look up,” they’d said, because with such tall buildings the view of the sky is always varied and interesting. And while looking up, I discovered that those tall buildings reflected other buildings (thanks to modern architect’s predeliction for glass.) So I started hunting for interesting reflections. The amazing weather helped enormously (22c and blue skies almost the whole time!) and a trip to Central Park to view the Fall Colours added a bit of variety to my project.
Finally I have added one of the final ‘reflection’ pictures I took – of the two of us reflected in the window of a subway carriage.
All in all, a wonderful few days reflecting (see what I did there?) on the wonders of being an Edinburgh Wedding Photographer!
