New York is the city that never sleeps, but if you want to have it all to yourself, and capture photographs of an empty city, you have to wake up early.
A venture into New York during its early morning hours -- especially on a Sunday -- offers three important elements not available at other times: golden light, empty sidewalks, and, most rare, abundant street parking.
You can see this side of the city yourself -- if you are willing to get up before 5am on weekend mornings.
Otherwise, this photo journal will show you how one photographer captured the city during the period that straddles both blue hour and golden hour, using a Nikon D700, a handful of lenses, lots of coffee, some afternoon naps, and hours on the computer.
Most of the images in this book were first published on the author's blog, but it also features a new half-dozen that are being seen here for the first time.
