New York City - Skyline and Rooftops

Hazy evenings are when 

the city’s dreams

hang over its rooftops

like an intricate web.

And as the city wakes 

to a night full of promises,

its dreams exhale

on the breath of

the day

like smoke

or too many 

heart-filled wishes

clinging to the trailed-off

ends of lover’s phrases.

This is a 2 second exposure taken on a moody evening with the Sony A99. The late summer haze had mixed with heavy rain-fog producing eerily beautiful colors at dusk. The vantage point is the top of the Empire State Building overlooking the Chrysler Building, rooftops, and skyscrapers of midtown Manhattan. Looking north, Central Park is on the left and the borough of Queens is on the right.
