Six weeks is a lotta time to take a lotta photos.
And so our postcard series, which includes our favorite photos from Croatia, Italy and Morocco, had to be done in two parts for New York City. There were just too many to choose from!
We’ve got mad love for Central Park.
The USS Intrepid is one of the most successful ships in US history and is now a museum.
A thoughtful moment at the Hudson River.
The High Line Park is built on an old, raised train track. It’s the perfect place to get unique views of the city just below.
We loved the street art in Brooklyn.
New York transportation, the subway and yellow cabs, are iconic symbols of the city itself.
The Museum of Modern Art is world-class and worth more than the two measly hours we gave it (sigh).
Lady Liberty stands proud before Ellis Island (but is much smaller than both of us expected).
The photo-worthy General Grant National Monument.
Love you? Okay, we do….
WANT TO SEE MORE POSTCARDS FROM NYC? Check out Part Two!
Wow, these are some of the best shots of NYC I’ve ever seen! Through these photos I can really see how much you loved the Big Apple. 🙂

Thanks Giulia! We certainly did love the Big Apple and it’s hard to believe but 6 weeks was not enough time.
Beautiful pics guys – incredible photography!!!
Thanks so much you two!
My favourite one is the fire hydrant – no jokes.
I love that shot too, thanks Ter!
Great Photos! I can’t wait to see the part-2.

Thanks Rashmi, I’m working on it and I hope I am as happy with it as I am with this one.
So beautiful! You guys are very talented, I’m more impressed every time! How do you get the taxi clear and the background so blurry?
Thank you for such kind words 🙂 To get the taxi clear and the blurred background this technique is called panning. Basically your feet are planted and and you focus on an object and follow it along while snapping the photo. It takes A LOT of practice, to get settings and speed right, but the effects turn out pretty cool sometimes. I applied the same technique on the subway shot to get the flag clear, but the rest of the subway blurred…
Wow that person in the second-to-last shot has a really nice bum!
But seriously, awesome photos guys 🙂
Thanks for modeling! I really love this shot. I can send you a copy of this processing I did if you like 🙂
Fabulous photos. Felt as if I was on the streets and in the gallery with you.
Thanks Johanna, your compliment means a lot to me 🙂
Awesome photos, as always!!
My favorites of this bunch are the Hudson River shot, the moving taxi, and the last “Love me” one.

Thanks Amanda, that Hudson River shot is Dalene’s favorite too. Mine is the moving Taxi 🙂
That photo of the sunset literally took my breath away. Aaaand, I would love to have a large photo of Kink in my living room…that one is a true classic.
We love the Kink shot as well. We’re just negotiating our printers to start selling our photography. Maybe you’ll have it arrive one day in your post box 😉
Love any snaps of NYC! Such an amazing place!
Thanks Tash!! I hope my part 2 comes out as good as this post. I am really happy with it.
Once again amazing postcards. The one the High Line is really unique.
Thanks Alouise. Yes, that High Line shot was quite unique and there is no photoshop action going on here. Just a unique piece of street art with a gorgeous backdrop.
Great photos! I’m in love with Central Park, too. 🙂 I haven’t done the High Line yet, I’m ashamed to say. A must for my next trip.

I’m in love with these. NYC is easily one of my favorite cities to photograph and visit, for that matter. Wonderful, beautiful photos.
Leah Travels recently posted..Leah’s Leaping over the Pond
Stunning photos! You’ll never, never run of out of things to see, do, and photograph in NYC. You’ve captured all of my favourite places in the city!
Krista recently posted..Vintage travel: Shoot all of these things in Argentina
Great photos! I especially like the Central Park ones. Looking forward to part 2!
Love the intersection shot with motion blur! Very cool 🙂
All those postcards bring out the best of New York. That street art in Brooklyn was pretty awesome especially the way you made it into a postcard and I would totally buy one.
Alexa Meisler recently posted..Roland’s Epic Adventures: Belmont Park
Thanks Alexa! That’s one of my favorite photos too.
I think this is the best of your postcard series so far! All this talk (and photos) of New York has made me so nostalgic for the Big Apple. Looking forward to seeing Part 2!
Cherina recently posted..Pilgrimage, Wolves and Bandits…Oh My!
Wow, thanks Cherina! Part two will be out this Friday!
Simply fabulous and better than any commercial postcards I’ve seen. So glad you guys enjoyed yourselves!
Wow, thanks Natasha!
Simply fabulous shots guys. Really capture the spirit of New York. Great work 😀
Laurence recently posted..Nontron – French town of the knife
Thanks Laurence, it was a city where I just couldn’t put the camera down.
Great photos as usual! They’re really making me miss the Big Apple. We’re taking my kiddo there for the first time this summer.
Thanks Bret. You guys will have a fab time. There is so much to do for anyone…
Great shots guys. Love the motion blur and great feeling in each one. How’s TY?
Thanks Lisa! Turkey is good – a far cry from what we got used to in New York, but a great adventure all the same!
Love these posts – my fav is the intersection with the taxis.
Thanks Cam – I think that one is my favorite too!
Another lot of brilliant photos – very inspiring. Question? Do you use a tripod?
Thanks again Sarah. Yes, we do use a tripod when I have to slow the shutter speed down or night shots.
Wow! I found your name surprisngly through a blog on Ireland but fell in love with these images of NY! Well done! One thing though: you’ve gotte me in trouble haha! Now I really wanna go back to New York but sadly enough don’t have the budget yet. I guess a job well done by you guys 😉 Keep it up!
Thanks for your comment Daphne! Glad we sucked you in with these pictures…we’ve done our job! haha! 🙂
As ALWAYS you guys take such wonderful photos. These are stunning and make me long to return to NYC.
We have to stop looking at them ourselves. It makes us want to go right back there as well! 🙂
