NYC - Empire State, Central Park and the Highline // Photography


Hello everyone!

As I'm sure a lot of you are aware, I've spent the last few days in New York City. I loved every minute of it, and I'd love to move there very soon. My class went there on a school trip, and so we went to several museums and a few broadway shows. Therefore, our five days there were packed with activities, which I actually enjoyed.

Anyway, I figured you might want to see some photos from my trip, so here you go!

We went to see the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, which I both found very interesting, although it would've been more so if I knew any of the history behind it,

One of the hundreds of photos I took from the top of the Empire State Building. Wow - just wow.

Isn't it gorgeous?

A little tumblr-esque photo my friend took of me.

 We visited the New York highline, which I at least, had never heard of. It's basically an old railroad track that has been turned in to an art walk, with modern pieces of art painted everywhere. Definitely something I'd recommend checking out if you're ever in New York!

Honey, I twisted through more damn traffic today

A little artsy shot of the view from the highline.

Times Square! I'm struggling a lot with how to take good photos of bright lights, sunsets and similar scenes, so if anyone has any tips, please let me know!

The architecture at Guggenheim art museum was incredible!

I'm a big fan of Monet's work, and seeing this one, one of my favourites, in real life, left such an impression on me! (Get it? Impressionism, impression, yep that's the extent of my puns).
Central Park rapidly became one of my very favourite places, and I don't usually post photos of myself on here, but I thought I'd post this one.

I think this is one of the photographs I'm the most proud of.

That's all I'm sharing with you today. I do have several hundred more, so if you're interested in seeing more, let me know!

Also, Norway's constitution day is coming up next Sunday, and the celebrations that take place here are rather grand. I was thinking I could do a Get Ready With Me of my national dress, and also talking and showing you all some of my celebrations. If anyone's interested in that, please let me know!

Thirdly and lastly, would you like to see some other blog posts about New York? Outfits, what's in my bag, places to see, etc. I'm very unsure of how interested you all actually are in this trip, whether I should post lots and tell you all about it, or whether I should treat it as a thing of the past.

Have you been travelling lately? Have you ever been to NYC, and if so, what are your opinions on it?
