Sitting on the grass in bryant park

I opened an old Aperture library today to find an image I was looking for, and while searching I got side tracked looking at old photos. By old, I don't mean decades, mind you, I just mean from a few years ago! Anyway, I particularly liked this set from a trip I took to new york in 2011. I had never really done anything with these shots so I figured I spent a bit of time playing around with them, and applying the VScO Film presets to a few to give them am nice filmy look.

These were taken the first night we arrived. We had headed out to get something to eat, and all I brought with me was my GF1. I had left the big guns in the hotel (It was the 5D Mark II I had brought with me on that trip, I think). The light was absolutely gorgeous and we sat soaking up the wonderful atmosphere of Bryant park (while also trying to get used to the heat and the new time zone!)
