Library Arches - Manhattan, New York

New York Public Library, Manhattan, New York

A rainy day in Manhattan led Rick Louie, Chris Nitz and I to take shelter in New York Public Library. We had planned to visit it anyway, but the raindrops got us there pretty quickly. Located just a few blocks from Grand Central, I can't believe that I never went inside after all of the years of passing it. A few steps past security, I realized what a photographic-rich destination it is. After climbing the stairs to the railing that overlooks the lobby, I spotted these marble arches that are over the stairway. I loved the textures in the stones and knew that I would be able to bring them out in post-processing.
