Weekly Photo Challenge: Joy – Kiss in Times Square

Eduardo Kobra’s Mural of Alfred Eisenstaedt’s Photo “VJ Day, The Kiss”

This week I go with a tribute to New York. The famous kiss in Times Square, photographed by Alfred Eisenstaedt, has been “re-edited” in this big mural by street artist Eduardo Kobra. He added a perfectly fitting explosion of colors to the joy of one of the most famous, liberating and passionate kisses of our history.

LocationThe High Line of New York City.

What to shot: There are plenty of occasions from this vantage point of view: a 1-mile section of the elevated former New York Central Railroad.

Ideal time to shot: You will not be allowed to be on the High Line at any time. Check the official site for seasonal operating ours.

Gear: Standard zooms to tele lenses are ideal to photograph the city from 10 meters above and capture her street life always on the go.

How to get there: Access to the High Line is possible via the many access points from Gansevoort Street to West 30th Street.

Coordinates: 40.749291°N 74.003671°W.
