New York Night - Rooftops of Midtown at Dusk.

—-

Dusk is the night’s love letter 

to skylines 

courted by the sunlight.

It’s the time between night and day 

when the city lights 

transform into stars

in an urban universe;

supernovas in a skyline 

full of dreams

and frenetic hope.

There are some nights that are so perfect that you just want to bottle them up so you can access them later. This is a 25 second long exposure taken with the Sony A99 on such a night. The late summer sunset slipped over the city slowly revealing a deep purple sky and a dusk that was unforgettable. 

This is a view from a rooftop in midtown Manhattan in the area known as Hell’s Kitchen (also commonly referred to as Clinton). The view is looking south towards 1 WTC (also known as the Freedom Tower, and One World Trade Center depending on who you talk to).

P.S. - In case, you missed it earlier, here is a half-hour interview I did (me on video!) last week with This Week in Photo talking about my photography of New York City: An Interview with Vivienne Gucwa

Empire State Building and abandoned railroad tracks.

It’s fascinating to consider the various ways in which we take our versions of where we live for granted.  

As if the places we inhabit sprouted forth perfectly sculpted into their current incarnations.  

Perhaps this is why if you live in any one place for an extended amount of time, you become deeply attached to a definitive notion of time and place that doesn’t specifically exist.  

And when you come across places in your current environment that run counter to that notion, it’s enough to take your breath away momentarily.

This is the final untouched part of the High Line. The High Line is a public park that sits along a historic freight railroad line elevated high above the streets of New York City on the west side of Manhattan.  

I took this photo with the Sony A99 on a private tour of this part of the High Line a few months back.  

It still haunts me.

New York City skyline. City lights at night.

There is nothing like summer nights in the city 

when the heavy haze, 

thick with the day’s dreams,

 nestles itself 

into the cradle of lights below.

This is a view of the New York City skyline looking south facing the Empire State Building, 1 WTC (also known as the Freedom Tower) and the Statue of Liberty. It is a 25 second long exposure taken on a recent night with the Sony NEX-7. I ended up at the top of Rockefeller center rather spontaneously this past weekend. 

Even though I was only up there for a short while since it was close to midnight, I had a great time taking long exposures. I was super curious as to how the Sony NEX-7 would fare with long exposures and while I only had one lens with me, I was pleasantly surprised at the results.  

While this view is probably one of the most popular views in Manhattan, it still never fails to impress.

New York City at night - Queensboro Bridge

At night, the city’s lights shine 

like stars in a massive urban universe.

And as its supernovas explode 

shedding their light 

onto the surface of the water, 

the night sky looks on in wonder.

This is a view of the Queensboro Bridge (also known as the 59th Street Bridge, Ed Koch Queensboro Bridge, and Queens Bridge) and the skyscrapers of midtown Manhattan. It’s a 25 second long exposure taken with the Sony A99 while on Roosevelt Island.
