New York City - Snow - Ludlow Street - Lower East Side
It’s moments like these
that the world
for every breath
the earth’s heartbeat.
And we move
through the city
relishing a chance
to be enveloped
by the sinking,
as the city
This was taken while walking down Ludlow Street on the Lower East Side on a beautiful winter night with my Sony A99.
There is nothing like standing in the swirling snow while the ground disappears under a blanket of white. Everything that matters and everything that is insignificant just melts away.
New York City - Snow - Bryant Park
I created my first full photo-story (tons of photos!) on Exposure about snowy winter nights in New York City:
It was fun to weave a series of narratives around many of the photos I have enjoyed taking during snowstorms here in NYC
I hope you enjoy it!
Let me know what you think!
New York City - Winter Night - West Village
Winter nights open their arms up to those who walk through city streets strewn with glinting white embers: alabaster sparks left over from clenched-fist hopes that burst from eager palms onward and upwards into the sky.
Winter nights are the feeling you get when you are wrapped in a blanket as memories and scenes from all the other lives you will live and have lived play on the back of your eyelids like a fever-dream cinematic sequence.
Winter nights in New York City wrap themselves around you like a cocoon surrounding you with the sweetest of silences as trees spin their branches like webs over streets held down by the barest hint of gravity.
And we walk through the city like somnambulists moving through an otherworldly landscape: gliding through the white remnants of dream-laden clouds slowly with our faces drawn to street lights that hang over streets like stars leading our way back to the places we rest our heads.
New York City - Snow - Morton Street - West Village
There is nothing quite like
in the city
when the trees reach over
with confectioner’s sugar snow
and lights twinkle in windows
like eyes full of wonder.
This was taken on a recent winter afternoon in the West Village with my Sony QX100 just as evening was about to take over. The street is Morton Street which is home to some of the first land in New York City settled by the first wave of European immigrants. It’s one of my favorite streets to walk down in the snow especially when all of the lights start to come on for the night.
