It was looking to be a hot, humid, and rainy morning so I decided to go over to the waterfront around Brookfield Place downtown.  If I got too hot, I would be able to easily duck into an air conditioned coffee shop for recovery.

The light was a little rough, so I brought along my new Soft graduated ND filters to go along with my 10 stop ND to get some long exposures of the harbor.

The new Westfield World Trade Center mall is pretty nice.  It's right at the entrance/exit to the WTC PATH train so it's a quick 10 minute ride for me.  First thing I noticed was that a new Nespresso store will be opening up there soon.  I can do some damage at that place.

Clouds were moving nicely, but kept hiding the sun so the filters were tough to get right.  I like the look of the sailboat masts swaying back and forth from the long exposure as well.

This person had the right setup.  Grab a chair and people watch through a giant window.

The food courts at Brookfield Place are amazing.  Black Seed Bagels, Umami Burger, Mighty Quinn's BBQ, Blue Ribbon Sushi, Num Pang Sandwich Shop, are located in the upper Hudson Eats food court, just to name a few.  Downstairs in the French food market, there are a few restaurants and bars where you can select your own cut of meat or fish and have them cook it up in front of you at the bar.

Ended up getting a snack of pork and chive dumplings from Norther Tiger.  I'm still a sucker for dumplings.
