I was talking about this photo the other day. It came up in discussion of it being my claim to fame. Back in 2015, I Love New York contacted me via instagram asking me of they could use it on their social media accounts. I didn’t think anything of it and a few hours later it was entered in I love NY’s weekly #ispyny contest. The photo won by a landslide.
I remember this day, I went to Newburgh to try out a job. I remember going to the waterfront while I was on break and photographing the Hudson River. I really didn’t have any plans with with what to do with these photos. A few days later i randomly picked this photo and did a few edits on Lightroom mobil app, and put it on Instagram.
