The New York City skyline in the Financial District as seen from midtown Manhattan
I love the variety of skyscrapers that make up the New York City skyline in lower Manhattan. They jut up like stalagmites from the city floor. This skyline view is usually photographed from the other side usually across the East River but this is a view of the skyline as seen from midtown Manhattan. Prominent works of architecture include New York by Gehry and the Municipal Building.
I have been experimenting quite a bit with post-processing. Someone commented on another photo of mine that I posted recently (in a negative fashion) that it didn’t seem like my other work. I replied: “That’s the beauty of art and vision - both have the freedom to change and evolve. Without that freedom, things would remain stagnant.” I can see how my style has changed over the last 3 months or so and I am grateful to have the freedom to experiment. It’s liberating to approach every photo as a blank canvas.
This particular photo was taken with the Sony a77 which I had the pleasure of using for several months late last year. I have been working on a few different stylistic photography projects over the last month which has definitely opened up creative doors in my mind.
Life may be difficult at times but it’s art that makes everything seem worthwhile.
