New York City at night - Rain in midtown Manhattan
Through eyelashes wet with rain,
a thousand thoughts fall
to the ground
and through the raindrops
the city lights blur together
as shadows make their way
into the night -

New York City - Tribute in Light - World Trade Center
Sometimes it’s just the way
the light catches the eye;
and how it pours itself
up to the sky
watering the stars
With love to New York City on a day of healing.
New York City - Night - Lower East Side - Orchard Street
There is nothing like night in New York City.
It’s in the way the lights shine, diffracted and star-shaped.
It’s in the way the buildings glisten like lighthouses for the lost and found.
And it’s in the way the chatter of taxi cabs and cars whiz past the ears like a never-ending dissonant lullaby.
The energy never changes.
It’s as if it is impossible for the city’s energy to change and shift.
As if that frenetic energy that propels us forward through the night was there all along,
and the city sprung up around it with open arms,
a long-lost lover looking for its muse.
Taken on Orchard Street a few nights ago with the Sony A7S as I walked along the streets pondering life and love.
