One World Trade Center Epic Shot

Hi Folks,

Okay so "maybe" this isn't a total epic shot, but that was the hope when I initially shot this image. I remember walking with my son from Battery Park, we had just gotten off the Statue of Liberty ferry and were on our way to Ground Zero. Now it can't be said that I have the most fabulous sense of direction. As a matter of fact I down right stink at it. Even with the map on my phone I still couldn't quite grasp the best route to get to Ground Zero. At some point during our walk, although I didn't tell my son but I think he knew I was pretty much winging it. I could see the building that we needed to get too. How hard could it be, it was like following the North Star. Just keep it front of you and just keep going. That really is what we ended up doing and as it turns out I looked like I knew what I was doing. :-) Anyways, to get to where we wanted to be, I thought it might be a good idea to cross over the particular bridge because it "seemed" like the right thing to do at the time. Imagine my surprise when I saw this view of the One World Trade Center. I loved it, I thought to myself how many people look at it from this view. Well probably everybody that walks this bridge, right? Well it was at this point that I thought to myself, (Inner voice here) "If I had a fisheye I wonder how this would look, way epic I bet." As it turns out I do not yet own a fisheye lens but I do have one in mind, the Sigma 15mm f/2.8 EX DG Diagonal Fisheye Lens it got great reviews and at some point and time I will splurge and get it. 

Oh dear the post got a lot bigger than I intended, I do tend to babble a lot. Anyways I took this shot with my Tamron f/2.8 24-70mm which I have to say is a pretty nice lens. It's my current go to lens, with the exception for portraits.

Until next time,
