New York City = No 1 on my Bucket List
For so many years I’ve wanted to travel to New York. Even more so now that my new profession is encompassed in the art world and New York has so many wonderful galleries. So when my amazing husband surprised me with a booked holiday, New York was now on the agenda.
The average temperature in New York was -6°C but this didn’t deter me from discovering this amazing city. When 18 inches of snow fell, New York turned into a magical wonderland.
As a keen user of social networking sites Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, not only was I able to share my experiences with everyone back home but I could also share my first hand view of New York through the many images I took. This is my interpretation of New York and the way I saw it. Finally!
Melissa Hobbs is a final year photography commercial major at Photography Studies College. Her dream of being a professional photographer is rapidly being realised. Inspired by such photographers as Paul Strand, Alfred Stieglitz and Edward Steichen, Melissa embarked on a journey to NYC with the intention of photographing “the essence of New York” She’s a wife and Mum to two young boys.
