New York: The Photo Atlas
New York -
the city that never sleeps--From its bright lights of Broadway to
its majestic views of the Brooklyn Bridge, New York is a state overflowing
I feel very fortunate to have made
a once-in-a-lifetime trip to this wonderful state in June of this
year. I never dreamed that one state could offer such a wealth of
life-changing experiences. Many pictures were taken to capture my
short stay, and even now, as I look back at the photos, I can feel
my adrenaline flowing at an all time high.
To help keep
the memories fresh in my mind, I was able to find the ideal book
that gave me a unique new perspective. New York.The Photo Atlas
is complied of aerial shots of all the streets, buildings, and landmarks
that make New York stand in a class by itself. All five boroughs
are included as well as several New York and New Jersey Suburbs.
Its hardbound coffee table size begs to be placed in anyone's front
many things that I feel make this book special. One of the most
amazing is the series of photographs that were used to create it,
all completed in a short four-week time period. They seem to project
the viewer into the scene, in the sense that they fly high above
the massive buildings and endless streets. The realism of this book
had me almost able to hear the roar of the helicopter as it dived
lower for the perfect shot.
Yorkers, tourists, or just those that are curious will all rejoice
when they open the first page and see the 'Big Apple' reaching out
to take them to places they never dreamed. Your guests will be attracted
to this one-of-a- kind book by its glossy pictures that reach out
and touch the hearts of all of those who open its compelling cover.
I know it has found a permanent place in my home, for it is a book
that I know I will pass on to future generations.
