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 Chrysler Building at Night

Darkness dances

across the water

and city lights

glow

like tiny candles,

golden, flickering

heartbeats

palpitating

to the

slow rhythm

of dreams,

as skyscrapers

entice

sleeping wanderers

to stretch 

towards

distant stars.

This is a 30 second exposure taken with my Sony A99 from Roosevelt Island overlooking the Chrysler Building and the New York City skyline of midtown Manhattan.

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

and universe

with dreams

and hope,

every speck 

of light

wrapped 

in memory

and remembrance.—-With love to New York City on a day of healing.

As I wrote in a few earlier posts regarding this photo assignment, having grown up here in New York City and lived through September 11, these photos changed my own perspective on the new World Trade Center.
