Hi,
I put together pictures I took over the past few year in NY. It is a collection of people that, for their style, look or attitude, fascinated me. I hope you like it! :)

Wonderfull photos Paolo ;)

I too, like street photography. The new Sony A7 series seems to good for this kind of shooting.

Thank you, Dylan.
Right on the sony...I have a 5dMkII and it's not really the ideal street photography camera...I usually keep the 24-105, sometimes the 70-200. Maybe one day I will try the 135, which I hear is very nice and more discrete.

Cheers

very nice shots (and I'm not much into street photography ::)), maybe it's only my case, but the page seems bit laggy

Thanks for the feedback, Cid. Which browser are you using? In general, apart some glitches when I launched the site, I did not receive complains about the speed. Looking forward to hearing from others! ;)

Paolo,

I really like your photos. Although I live on the other coast, I have visited my son in New York City a few times over the last year+ and have come to appreciate the opportunities for street photography there (he lives in the far north Washington Heights area - very near Fort Tryon Park, but I roam the city while he is at work). Your project has given me inspiration for my next visit.

(way) too much js; 1+ sec load times for some

there's also a lot of other calls going on in the back-end that could be avoided; what kind of service do you have installed?

Just a theme (probably a bit heavy) and a few of plugins for lightbox, social buttons, supercache... I spent some time optimizing it and running tests with webpagetest and I now get mostly As and Bs. First byte time is still not good.

it's not only about loading times, but in chrome I can't even scroll fluently trough gallery (IE is bit better with that)

Strange...I just tested it on chrome (both mac and pc) and it works fine. I will check again.
thanks again for the feedback.

you are welcome, I was just pointing that out because pictures are all very nice and this little issue is hurting the impression a bit

btw: right now I'm home @chrome 31.0.1650.57 @mac and the lagging is not issue anymore...
