It’s more about taking photos of the city
Qiaohui_Z, Jul 2021
I have to say this trip is unique and unforgettable. Pilar ( I hope I’m not making mistake of the name ) shows me a lot of fun place of the city with the story behinds. It is definitely more than a photography trip but also a story telling trip because I get to know a lot of histories about those interesting corner of the city as well. She gives the photo I taken meaning, the bloody angle, the smallpox hospital so I feel whatever I have taken is more than a photo but a whole stories behind it. I personally really like the spots she picked which are not crowded with tourists but shows the city of New York lively. I believe anyone with a explorer heart and want to take records of their exploration will enjoy the trip as much as I do.
