New York City - Rain - Chinatown

Looking through

the bleary-eyed clouds

that fill the sky above,

the cracks of the city’s

streets and sidewalks

stretch across its body

like wrinkles on well-worn skin

while street signs and buildings

melt into each other

pouring themselves

into a river of colors.

And in the twilight

of the afternoon’s memories,

the sky’s tears fall.

New York City - Chinatown Rooftops with Graffiti - Sunset

—-

New York City,

you are:

the tears that I blink back when I stare into  the sun as it slides away from the remains of the day into night;

the dreams which are held close to my heart bound only by my imagination;

the sliver of hope that I have clung to in my darkest times as if hope was the only ledge I could hold onto at the edge of the universe sitting between the chasm of nothingness and being;

the city that holds the key to the rest of the world.

—-

These are the rooftops of an area of lower Manhattan located between the Lower East Side and Chinatown known as Two Bridges due to its proximity to the Manhattan Bridge and the Brooklyn Bridge. Taken with the Sony A7R this past weekend.

New York City - Sunset - Chinatown - East Broadway

Springtime:

when the sun 

slips down 

past the clouds

dizzy and

as light as

the weight

of the fuzzy 

well-worn fringes

of a dream

just before eyelashes

open like a curtain

revealing a 

dawdling night sky.

In preparation for my upcoming trip to Paris this week, I am now in the possession of  the Sony a7R with the Zeiss Vario-Tessar T* FE 24-70mm F4 lens (thank you Sony!) which I took out for a walk and promptly fell in love with all in the span of the first few shots I took with it. 

I walked over the Manhattan Bridge and Brooklyn Bridge and it was a pleasure to capture the beautiful spring light that poured over East Broadway. It’s incredible how the sun’s light changes so drastically from season to season. Spring light is one of my favorites. After the brutal winter we had in New York City (I am in denial that it may snow again tomorrow), it was nice to bask in the spring glow.
