August is the month when everyone takes a vacation. If you are one of the unlucky ones to be stuck in the city (with all the lovely tourists), maybe you should check out one of NYC’s public pools. In this aerial image, we see the city not as a concrete jungle but as a perfect blue waterscape, a refreshing oasis in which to escape the hustle and bustle of daily life. Though densely populated, the pool is strikingly vast, an enchanting manmade lake to be explored.

New York On Air specializes in aerial photography spanning the landscape of the city. With a team of helicopter pilots and aviation professionals, they are able to capture New York in unexpected and captivating ways.

As an adult, Wetmore ventured into the mill towns for his series Jubilee Kitchen I and II, unveiling moments of unexpected rebirth in the struggling neighborhoods shadowed by its industrial history.
