Manhattan, New York, USA, on a lovely spring weekend, can be a fascinating place to explore. For its sheer intensity, bustle and energy, nothing beats this city. The pinnacle of human urban endeavour, one is reminded of an ant's nest of activity. Set against a background of constant noise, car horns, sirens and chatter, Manhattan can overwhelm the senses. And yet, at the right time of day, one can find pockets of peacefulness and beauty. Enjoy these photos taken in one intense weekend of photography in "the big apple" in May 2016.
