A bygone era

I was just looking at the photos from a recent trip to New York, and I really do love this one as it kind of typifies the city for me. I was walking through downtown Manhattan to see the Freedom Tower, and stopped on West Broadway when I noticed this old neon sign for a liquor store; it was like a throwback to decades gone by and the watercolour finish I just gave it in Photoshop seems to work nicely, and enhance that “bygone era” feel.

It’s so easy to spend your time in NYC looking up, but some of the best shots are closer to the ground.
