I have been scouting for months on a best spot for the Macy’s 4th of July fireworks in New York. I wanted it to have a different perspective – a different view but to my dismay I couldn’t find one. As the event neared I thought of just going local or be early in Hamilton Park, Weehawken. Luckily, two days before the most awaited July 4th, a friend of mine hooked us up with his fellow contact. I guess destiny has its own course of finding me a spot.
The view is from the rooftop of a 22 storey-condo. The sight was just simply what I thought of --- it was breathtaking. As I enjoyed watching the fireworks, both my hands are busy clicking the triggers to capture the amazing fireworks display.
Yes, I used two DSLR camera bodies: one with wide angle lens and one telephoto lens for tight shot of Empire State Building.
When I got home, scanning through the pictures I knew I got what I wanted “The Empire State’s Magic Moments”.
Please share to your friends the "Empire State's Magic Moments". See more photos of July 4th Fireworks.
Special thanks to Fernando Trujillo for arranging the spot for us. You can see his awesome work here .
