On one late night while passing through Grand Central Terminal. I noticed that the East to West underpass below Vanderbilt Hall was completely empty, what a catch! I quickly pulled out my new MeFOTO DayTrip tripod… and set everything up for the HDR shot. Photographers have to have permission and a permit to shoot with a tripod in Grand Central Terminal, so I had to make this happen very quickly!
The location of this underpass is really pretty interesting; it leads to a very popular tourist attraction called the Whispering Arch. Basically, you and a friend can stand at opposite sides of the arch, while one person says something in a whisper, the other person can hear him/her as if they are standing right next to each other.
