Homage to the Empire State

Homage to the Empire State
Originally uploaded by lorenzodom

Yesterday, I had the great opportunity to trek all over the city in search for the best places to shoot great street and landscape photography with a representative of a major tech company that is launching a new location-based photo app soon in three cities including NYC, Seattle and San Francisco and they asked me to be the lead photography adviser for our great city.

Thus, all day yesterday, from 7 AM until 8 PM, we traversed as much of this magnificent metropolis as was possible before our soles ached and our memory cards were overflowing with pictures that prove that New York City is the absolute best pace for photography in the world.

If you are interested, I posted map of many of the spots we hit: Lorenzo’s List of the Top 25 Hot Spots for Photography in New York City.

Happy Photo Trekking,

Italian Painter Claudio Filippini Inspired by Another Photo by NYC Street Photographer Lorenzo Dominguez

September 15, 2010, New York City:

A special thanks to Italian painter Claudio Filippini, who just informed me that he has finished another painting inspired by one of my photos, You Lookin' at Me?. It is now one of the featured works on his website.

Here, in this image, I've created a diptych of his rendition and my original photograph.

The first painting he created was inspired by my photo, This Is New York!, which he finished in October of 2008.

And the second, recently finished in May of this year, was inspired by my photo, the most beautiful day of the year.
