Fortified with the best chili I’ve had in a long time we continued our way through Central Park to the subway. Not knowing the city I just followed along and we made our way to High Line Park in Chelsea. We walked the High Line and I knew I wanted a shot to re-attempt the “tilt shift” look {click here for my 1st attempt}. There were so many choices it was hard to pick.

To complete our day we checked out Chelsea Market and then ate at a diner. Our group divided in half, one headed home, and the rest of us powering through an extra hour to head up to Times Square. Exhausted from our day we piled into the car and headed out of the city. The drive home was treacherous starting with a 45 minute delay sitting in traffic and then a BIG delay when our car collided with a deer on 91 north. Many thanks to the CT State Police for responding so quickly and a BIG thank you to Steve our tow truck driver without whom we may not have made it home. AND mucho, mucho kudos to my buddy Kevin for his mad driving skills and maintaining control over his car and getting me home safely to my sleeping babies.

  1. Nice tilt-shift effect Jess. Looks like you’re magically suspended over the street for this shot. Sky hooks?

  2. Looking at this picture, I feel like a giant looking down from up high … or like I was looking at a model train set and city scene. What is the tilt shift effect?

    And thanks for being there in my moment of doubt. You are such a good friend.


  3. The tilt shift effect is when you use Photoshop to selectively blur an image so that it looks like it was taken with a tilt-shift lens and makes the image look like a miniature. Google it and try it out!!!
