High Line, New York City
Once you begin to look at the world for photographs, everything begins to take on new character and interest. You become differently aware of your surroundings, looking at them with a fresh eye. Your neighbors' gardens, the office buildings you pass every day, even common objects like coins or key chains—all can make compelling images.
The Caledonia is one of many apartment buildings newly constructed along Manhattan's High Line.
Photo Tip: Compose your building shots with a compelling foreground element to add interest, scale, and depth.
