NYC Fog 3

It was extremely foggy in New York City this past Friday so I decided to go out and capture that great mood fog creates.  All images were taken in Tudor City which is a fabulous neighborhood on the East side between 41st and 43rd streets and Second and First Avenue.  It sits a top of a cliff that 42nd street cuts through to access the UN Building.  All images were taken with my Fuji x100s…
