The Making of “New York City” by Cheryl Eagers

The water ripples in the foreground with a jet boat making its way across the shot. The centerpiece of the picture is the iconic New York City skyline announcing its presence.

About the Experience

Last summer I had the joy of experiencing New York City for the first time in my life! Of course, I was going to bring my camera along and capture as many moments as I could along the way.

I took this picture on a cruise boat tour that was taking us to visit the Statue of Liberty. On the back end of the boat, I was feeling a bit uncomfortable from the sea and decided to stand up. I was almost blindsided by the view of the city in front of me. I quickly took out my camera to make sure I commemorated this moment with a picture.

My Thoughts

This image captures my memories of New York perfectly, a jumble of styles all working together. I loved every moment in New York: the food, the people, the entertainment and the shopping!

Despite being so excited, I have to admit that all this fervour definitely took a toll on my energy levels. To be honest, I feel totally embarrassed that I didn’t see the skyline beforehand while I was on my Statue of Liberty tour. I was at the end of a five-week journey and I was feeling less motivated to take images than normal. But this image certainly sparked up my creativity!

What I love about this picture is that it reminds me that beauty is going to find you no matter where you are and how you feel. Even though I was tired and a bit less inspired, the sights that I had in front of me gave me the energy and motivation to snap some pictures. And as this image shows, I’m very glad that I did!
