Jonathan Smith Captures NYC Streets as If He Was a Local

Tourists seem to stick out like a sore thumb -- especially those who travel to places like New York City where Jonathan Smith did to capture these 'NY' photos. Rather than taking the predictable photos standing in front of monuments, this photographer stands behind his camera and lets his lens do the talking.

Jonathan Smith is a photographer from Birmingham, United Kingdom with a love of travel, especially across North America. His most recent trip captures iconic images of New York City from a perspective that seems almost as if he's seeing the sites through the eyes of a local. My personal favourite of Jonathan Smith's NY captures is the photo of the American flag next to a brick building, as it's simple yet the flag speaks for itself.
