New York City - Skyline at Dusk
There is something really extraordinary about the shift between day and night in New York City.
It’s gradual and at the same time abrupt in its magnitude.
The lights on the skyscrapers flicker on as the night sky pulls itself over the city while the sun is still dancing with the horizon.
It’s this sort of in-between time that seems to suit a city full of people who feed off the frenetic energy and constant shifts that occur on a momentary basis.
New York City rarely dwells in absolutes.
Its landscape and structures only seem to remain still.
This is a view from the Top of the Rock (also known as 30 Rock and the top of Rockefeller Center) taken with the Sony A99. The skyscrapers of midtown Manhattan sit in the foreground leading up to the Empire State Building and further in the distance sits the Freedom Tower and lower Manhattan.

New York City - Sunset - Long Island City - Queens
Sunsets are skipped heartbeats:
full of light and suspended in time,
they are the trailed off, long ends
of phrases uttered
by the city and sky
when faces are close
and kisses are imminent.
This is a view of the skyline of midtown Manhattan including the Empire State Building and the Chrysler Building. It was taken during a brilliant sunset that emerged after a rather dramatic rainstorm. The rooftops in the foreground are the rooftops of Long Island City, Queens. To the right is the Queensboro Bridge (also known as the 59th Street Bridge, and the Ed Koch Queensboro Bridge).

News Update: I will be speaking at WPPI in Las Vegas next week (info below)
I will be giving a presentation at WPPI in Las Vegas on the stage at the Sony booth on all three days of the Expo: March 3rd - March 5th. My presentation will be about social media and how to utilize social media to grow and sustain your photography business and career.
I have to say that I am really looking forward to this. I have been deeply entrenched in the process of writing and editing my photography book since I am nearing the final stretch of the first part of the project. So this should be a fun and exciting change of pace.
I always find giving presentations and attending events to be a great way to stock up on creative fuel since I get to connect with other wonderful people about photography. Very often so many of the encounters I have at photography events have inspired creative growth and friendships.
If you will be attending WPPI, come and say hello. And if you have some time in your schedule maybe stay a while and listen to me talk about the wonders of social media as it relates to the business of photography. I promise I will try my best to be entertaining and informative :)
