Visiting relatives in NYC earlier in the month the weather was miserable - the backlash from a storm elsewhere - but on our last afternoon in the city the sun came out, just as we got to the 9/11 memorial

Spent the day on the 49th floor of 1 Canada Square in Canary Wharf, so, despite not great weather and shooting through glass, I had the opportunity to get some shots of Canary Wharf from a nice high vantage point;

Monsieur Benzema est heureux. Always nice when a player celebrates bang in front of me. And being a bit selfish, its quite nice when I am the only photographer on that side.

 

If you have more of those that would make a great gallery. Could there be a way to predict where they would run to and celebrate? Other than the obvious TV cams. Could there be a way to attract them? Multiple flashlights going off? Waving a bunch of tulips?
