BRIGHT LIGHTS, BIG CITY

I could only get one shot off with my tripod, before the authorities reigned down and asked for my permit. I would have liked to make some adjustments, obviously. You guys think it is easy to shoot in NYC? Ha, I think not ;-)
For those that have asked or wondered, you can shoot this shot as much as you want without a tripod. Technically, you have to get a permit to shoot with a tripod on NYC property. You can try to catch some shots on the fly like this, but since every square foot of NYC is covered by surveillance cameras, you will have someone asking for your permit in no time, or as long as it takes for them to get to you. It didn't help that I was standing right in front of about 6 police officers who were radioed to by the great monitors in the sky. The officer who confronted me was nice enough to let me get this one off. You can shoot in the parks with a tripod though.
