Photograph of Manhattan Financial District by Alex Nichol

Manhattan Financial District

On our journey down to the East River to catch our helicopter ride over Manhattan, we took a little time to explore New York's financial district. The highlight for us was lunch at Fraunces Tavern - the old red brick building pictured below. It's ostensibly one of the oldest buildings in the city, but parts of it have been ripped out and replaced so many times over the years, there's barely any of the original building left. The food was delicious though!

These photographs were taken with the Fujifilm X-T5 and the perfect do-it-all lens: the Fujinon XF23mm f/1.4 R LM WR . And of course, I'd never be without my Kase Wolverine Magnetic circular polariser.
