After my vacation in September 2015 I knew I want to get back to USA as soon as possible. With my friend we planned another vacation, or more likely photo expedition, for May 2016. Here you can see my results. I have to say I am really satisfied with them.
Body: Nikon D5500
Lenses: Sigma 17-70mm f/2.8-4.0 DC Macro OS HSM Contemporary, Nikkor 35mm f/1.8 AF-S G DX, Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 APO EX DG OS HSM
Filters: Hoya PRO1D polarizers, Cokin P system, LEE system
Locations: New York, Philadelphia, Atlantic City, Washington D.C.
Photo shooting in New York was awesome. I mean, New York City is great place for taking great images, it’s one of the most photogenic cities in the world, it has it’s character, original places, friendly people. We walked several tens of kilometers around and took a lot of very nice photos. I was expecting little more, but I am not disappointed, it was great experience and I am happy my photos are so good (for me).
Philadelphia and Atlantic City were much different. Philly is nice place, but to be honest, not so interesting, at least for me. We visited Rocky steps, took some photos, but then it started to rain as hell so it was end of our visit in Philly. We stopped for the lunch, got car and moved to Atlantic City where we arrived before sunset. It was heavily cloudy and raining, so we waited till it stopped raining and went for a boardwalk walk. I don’t know if it was because of the month we visited AC, but there was almost nobody. In few hours we met maybe ten ppl. One of them was, unfortunately, totally drunk former US soldier when we were really afraid of getting hurt or our equipment getting destroyed, because he was asking us all the time if we are terrorists and came only to hurt their ppl. Not good experience … Even though it ended well, we rather got back to hotel. Next day was really nice, sunny with some clouds in the sky, not hot tho. We took some photos and headed to Washington D.C.
Washington is different level compared to New York. The city is much more clean, calmer and with much different architecture. It’s really photogenic as well, but don’t look for tall buildings… the tallest one is US Capitol.
Thanks everybody who visited this post and now just look at pictures I took. I hope you will like it!
