It is amazing how the camera can lie. Whilst this image depicts peace and tranquility, pointing my lens in another direction would have painted a very different picture. Right behind me were the towering buildings of lower Manhattan, a busy city street,
and the bustle of tourists and business people. Infact, the person in the picture was not taking in the view; rather he was on his smartphone, probably taking a very short ‘internet’ break during his lunchtime.
