London, Paris, New York...

 

Only 10 days to go before Under Glass opens at Le Petit Choiseul, and every picture is framed and ready to go.  But my journey to France will be a somewhat circuitous one – I've taken some of my best images in New York over the years, so I'm really looking forward to spending seven days there... en route to Paris!

I have a wish-list of locations to visit photographically, and top of that list are several places where the New York Subway runs on an elevated section above ground – remember that scene from The French Connection with Gene Hackman driving “underneath” the train? A good one seems to be in Manhattan on the Q line, near Canal Street; another out in Brooklyn, where Line 3 runs on Livonia Avenue. We'll see!

Before I go to New York, I'm giving a talk to Pinner Camera Club on my previous project, City Shapes, photographed in London. I've enjoyed re-visiting all my prints in readiness.

So here, in my opinion, is the best of New York and City Shapes...
