New York City
When everything else slips away, it’s the manifestations of dreams that our fingertips cling to the most.
Wishing everyone a very Happy New Year.
2013 was one of the most brilliant years of my life on so many levels. It was also one of the most soul-crushing years of my life. And yet, when I look back, I don’t know if I would trade any of the moments away for others.
I already feel nothing but butterflies-in-the-stomach about 2014. There are a lot of huge things in the works regarding my photography and writing that I will announce in due time. It’s enough to keep my head spinning with endless possibility when I lay my head down on my pillow at night though. And that’s a feeling I want to wrap up and bottle to share with the world.
May you all experience endless butterflies-in-the-stomach moments in 2014.
New York City Holiday Tree and Chrysler Building Ornament
Wishing everyone regardless of what they believe in or celebrate a beautiful day today and tomorrow full of joy, happiness, peace and love.
Taken at One UN New York with my Sony A99 where one of their decorators was awesome enough to purchase New York City landmark trinkets and decorate their holiday tree with them.
New York City Skyline and the Chrysler Building
You were waiting
with eyes squinting
from the blinding
promise of possibility.
And the city opened its arms
full of rain-soaked promises
and fog-tinged hopeful sighs
taking your hand
as your heart soared
above the building-scraped clouds
only for a second.
And in that second
you weren’t waiting
You were finally
where you needed to be.
This was taken on a foggy evening in New York City with the Sony A99 as the city lights all flickered on like lazy stars in a cloud-filled urban sky. The view is looking out towards the Chrysler Building, skyscrapers, and rooftops of Midtown Manhattan from above.
P.S. - Sorry for posting so infrequently as of late. I just got back from an amazing blogger conference retreat called Click Retreat where I was fortunate to give a presentation and teach some really amazing bloggers how to do light painting.
I am also preparing for a presentation that I will be giving at the Sony Booth at Photo Plus Expo at the end of this month. I will post more about both the conference I spoke at and my presentation at Photo Plus Expo later this week!
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
or too many
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.
