Manhattan Bridge. Night. New York City.
The world stops spinning on its axis
as the city’s lights search through the night
for hearts that flutter to the
syncopation of its pulsating lights.
This was taken on a stormy night in Brooklyn with the Sony A99 as the waves in the East River pounded the piers and the wind whipped against the faces of the few brave souls who were still standing at the edge of Brooklyn Bridge Park hoping to catch a first glimpse of the city’s lights as they flickered into view.
I am always amazed at the power of long exposure photography to calm the chaos in a landscape, especially in a cityscape.
