A New Spot (for me) in New York

I have been to New York so many times that I can not count, but in all those trips I have never been to Lincoln Center. I was lucky enough to make the trip uptown just in time to catch my favorite blue skies just after sunset.

Once again, I encountered the "no tripod" rule. I am always dumbfounded by this restriction. It is so frustrating to have everyone around you shooting pictures (the wrong way) and yet I can not set up a tripod and get the photo taken the right way. The police came up to me and told me that I could not shoot images on a tripod, with basically no explanation as to why. I had already captured most of what I wanted (and then captured a couple of more with the fish eye lens before I packed up).

I will have to visit here again on my next trip and hope that the fountain is turned on for the next photo shoot.
