Here's my photos of Hurricane Sandy in New York City. I've never seen NYC so deserted.

I used two 5D Mark III with the 17-40mm f4 L and the 24-105 f4 L so I wouldn't have to change lenses. This one in particular is one of my favorites:

Thanks. I was hoping someone would post some storm pics here. I'm not going out -- unless the eye passes directly over here -- and it might. I'll know in the next 90 minutes!

First of all congrats on going out and sharing your great photos.
"I'm a Legend" - all that comes to my mind when I look at those photos :)

Great to see someone making the best of the current situation. Thanks for sharing Frankie. Some great shots. Very eerie indeed. Does bring to mind scenes from "I Am Legend." I for one, would definitely be out taking shots if I were living there. It's not every day you get opportunies like this. Stay safe.

Don't take my advice. Don't even take my advice not to take my advice.

Great shots Frankie. You are now our eyes and ears to the world of Sandy.  BE SAFE out there but have some fun too. What an opportunity.  I'd be doing the same thing.  Post when you can.

Cheers
A few cameras and lenses and a lot of creative energy and imagination.

i'm on the eastern shore of maryland. frankly, i'm not impressed(with the storm, not your shots) lots of rain, some decent wind, but really not so great. we probably had 2 storms this last summer with more powerful wind, and while a lot of rain has fallen, it's never been hard. hell, just when my wife was saying it's unsafe for me to go out and get some shots of flooding(we are close to sea level, even a hard rain will cause flooding in spots), the mailman rolls up like it's just any other day.

Here's my photos of Hurricane Sandy in New York City. I've never seen NYC so deserted.


I used to work in 1585 Broadway (Morgan Stanley building with ticker tape on the wall), just to the right of your shot of Times Square and even @6am you'd see few people on the sidewalks but you'd still see a lot of trucks (food and drink mainly) buzzing up and down. Very surreal.

edit: don't forget Frankie to shoot some video too - will look very spooky and cool
