New York City. Above the skyscrapers of midtown.
When you view New York City from above, it’s hard not to get caught up in the head-rush that almost instantaneously occurs the moment your eyes attempt to account for the grandiose sense of scale of the city.
How do you make sense of that split-second that your heart beats in time to the rhythm of the streets below?
How do you keep your feet on the ground while your soul attempts to soar above and throughout the city, swooping between the cavernous buildings?
New York City is a study in contradictions and confirmations.
It’s a city that either inspires flight or plants you firmly in its primordial schist formations like the skyscrapers that rise up from such depths.
This was taken on an impossibly beautiful summer afternoon with the Sony A77. The view is from the top of the Empire State Building looking down at the streets and skyscrapers of midtown. Its definitely one of my favorite views from above in midtown.
