New York - From The Empire State Building, 2003.
Every month, on the 1st of the month, the City Daily Photoblog family decide on a general theme day.
This month is very unusual for all City Daily Photobloggers - the theme is City Exchange - the theme is post a photo of a city other than yours. It's weird as I'm not that comfortable posting a shot not related in someway to Dubai, though the Daily Photo people thought this would be fun and still relevant so - here we go...
So, my interpretation of this theme is to post 2 shots of New York USA.
Why? Three reasons:
1: We went there on our honeymoon in 2003 and this is when I took these shots
2: It was these shots that really made me think I can take half-decent photos
3: Both me and my lovely wife are going back to New York for a week tomorrow!
(fear not! DubaiDailyPhoto has the world's best button pusher to be second in command, not a day shall be missed)
