This evening went out for dinner to an Indian restaurant in Little India on Lexington Ave. One my way back pictured up some Indian veggies. I could not click any picture today, hence this quick mobile picture.

I wanted to create negative space by using shallow depth of field. I do not know if this is a good example of negative space but is a great example of depth of field, where focus is on flower and everything else is blurred.
On a separate note, I finally restored the old posts but the links with in the blog need to be fixed. I am working on it and would take some time as I have to manually correct the links. Sorry for the inconvenience.
I goofed up a bit while playing around with the templates and ended up deleting all the posts. :( I don't know what I was thinking!! Fortunately I made a backup and will restore it shortly, though I am afraid the blog links with in the posts might not work. Keeping my fingers crossed & hope it is not as bad as I think it is.

One World observatory opened on 29th May and this was my first visit there. The elevator takes us to the 102nd floor and there is a short film on Manhattan. Then the curtain raises for the magnificent view of Manhattan, East River, Hudson River and the bridges connecting to Manhattan. But this magnificent view is only for few seconds and before you know the curtain falls. I was disappointed as I was distracted and could not see the view properly. I felt I wasted my $34 for nothing. Then we were directed to 100th floor where we had plenty of time to see the panoramic view. However, unlike Empire State's 86th floor observatory deck, this deck is closed with big glass walls. The view was good but could not take good pictures. If you happen to visit 911 memorial, do go to One World Observatory. The view from the observatory is worth watching.
Looking down at the boarding area for the Maid of the Mist boat ride at Niagara Falls while waiting in line to get on the boat. This image was taken over the weekend during our Niagara Trip.

There is an aerial tramway that connects upper Eastside of Manhattan with Roosevelt Island. Island has a great view of east side of midtown & uptown Manhattan. Today I took the tram and instead of the skyline of Manhattan, I chose to take the topdown view of the streets below. This is York Avenue from the tram.
