New York City - Skyline

There is something really extraordinary about the shift between day and night in New York City.

It’s gradual and at the same time abrupt in its magnitude.

The lights on the skyscrapers flicker on as the night sky pulls itself over the city while the sun is still dancing with the horizon.

It’s this sort of in-between time that seems to suit a city full of people who feed off the frenetic energy and constant shifts that occur on a momentary basis.

New York City rarely dwells in absolutes.

Its landscape and structures only seem to remain still.

New York City: Skyline and Empire State Building

Late afternoon light is a ghost.

It grazes eyelashes

and pours its stark light

over skyscrapers

like a battle-worn soul

asserting its presence

over the shadows.

This is a view from the Top of the Rock (also known as 30 Rock and the top of Rockefeller Center) taken with the Sony A99. The skyscrapers of midtown Manhattan sit in the foreground leading up to the Empire State Building and further in the distance sits the Freedom Tower and lower Manhattan.

New York City - Empire State Building and Skyline

We stood there,

your hand in mine,

as the skyscrapers 

dotted the horizon

like nervous heartbeats

syncopated in time

to the city’s nervous

energy.

And as the sun 

caressed our faces 

with its warmth,

our hearts 

skipped together

over the buildings

towards the horizon

infinite and full

of life.

This is a view of the Empire State Building and New York City skyline taken with my Sony A99 while high above the rooftops and skyscrapers of midtown Manhattan. If you wait for just the right cloudy day, you can catch a glimpse of the few moments during sunset when the sun pries the clouds open and lets its light wash over the city in waves.
