A Photography Entry of Summer in New York City


3 Comments

New York City is ranked the most photographed city according to several sources. Despite its high cost of accommodation and related expenses, domestic and foreign tourists still flock to New York to indulge in one of the most visited cities in the world. I spent four days over the summer in New York City, including the 4th of July which is also known as Independence Day. These are some pictures from my photo collection to showcase some of the sights.

My favourite pick of Shake Shack burgers would be the Portobello, totally for veggie-lovers too.

Being at the Top of The Rock provides the view of the Empire State and Central Park, though it is marginally lower than the top of Empire State.

Photo Essay Of Vineyards In Napa Valley


1 Comment

My trip to Napa Valley on this day exactly a year ago is still freshly mapped in my mind. I missed an exit and ended up passing California 37 to Napa Valley from San Francisco. It was absolutely a pleasure to drive through the countryside, passing endless stretches of vineyards for what it felt like forever. It didn’t really matter that I returned sunburned from the scorching heat and merciless rays of the California summer.  Instead, glad to been there and done that.

Niagara Falls – Which Side Is Better?


2 Comments

Summer’s here, everyone is traveling. You can’t resist the urge to put your passport into use after scanning through Facebook photos of family and friends on vacation, or anywhere else except home. Don’t miss a trip to Niagara Falls, especially the Canadian side. When you are there, you can feel the magnificence of the waterfalls. The roaring of the waterfalls are loud enough to let you wonder how much water are running over the edge. It also reminds you of your presence at one of the most beautiful waterfalls in the world. If you want to get down onto the river and explore the river close-up, go ahead with the great experience but be prepared to get wet.

I explored both sides of Niagara Falls by foot, I walked over the bridge connecting the American and Canadian border because I want to take pictures of the falls from both sides. Please do a check on which nationality can do that because the last I know was that not all passports can just cross the customs on the bridge and back.
