"I hope I can be as strong and as resilient as New York has been the past 20 years." - Leylah Fernandez to the crowd, after the US Open Women's Singles Final on 9/11 2021
This week’s photo challenge is to “go wide” and I can’t think of a better place where a wide-angle lens would be at home than New York.
It’s best explored walking, and there’s a lot to take in, even at ordinary corners.
These photos were taken a few years ago, before Covid, and the city has gone through a lot since then. Still it has an indomitable spirit.
The city that never sleeps did take a break.
But you know it’d come back, as it always does.
