High Line – Sunset and Evening

Matt Hill

The newly-opened High Line Park in Manhattan is simply gorgeous. Such a beautiful solution to a structure that had expired. Do yourself a favor and check it out. Take a stroll in the sunset/evening - it's worth it. [gallery link="file" columns="2" orderby="ID"]

The park staff was really cool. They missed that I was using a huge softbox and power pack for about 1 1/2 hours. Unfortunately, I had to stop with the flash, but tripods are OK. You can shoot flash (like, 600 Ws +) if you get a permit from downtown.

I blended my cut paper art and night photography tonight as a test. Random walkers of the High Line (mostly people from other continents!) donned the paper mask and made funny for the camera. New Yorkers (with one awesome exception) ignored my portrait requests with total, "you're not even talking to me" disdain.

My favs:

Oh, and I made my first act of public art. The mask was on adhesive-backed vinyl :) Take only pictures, leave only art behind. (grin)
