New York City - Snow at Night
We wander through streets
the scattered remnants
of the sky’s memories:
the weight of hope
that bears down
as we walk
with our faces turned
towards the city night’s stars
that lead our way
into the melted light
I have been going through my large collection of city snow photographs for a current client. What I love the most about snow at night is the timeless quality it imparts to the city. It’s the leveler of time in some respects.
And speaking of current projects, I am back in the thick of working on my New York City photography book after spending a few days in Las Vegas this week speaking at WPPI on all three days of the Expo on the Sony stage.
The experience was a whirlwind of activity and I came back on the red-eye flight to New York City earlier this morning feeling incredibly inspired and hopeful for some very, very, very exciting things that are now being planned thanks to some really wonderful encounters with people at WPPI (more on all of that as events unfold).
But most of all I am extremely grateful for the experience. Thank you to Sony for giving me this opportunity! And I also wanted to sincerely thank all of the super cool people who sat through my presentations and who connected with me afterwards or during the duration of the conference.

Interested in viewing these directly in my online portfolio? Here they are along with other New York City winter photos:
New York City - The Brooklyn Bridge
On hazy summer afternoons when dusk pulls its soft purple veil over the city, the skyline softens in the dreamy-eyed gaze of the clouds
And as light slides from the sky making its way over steel, wood and concrete towards the disintegrating horizon, bridges and skyscrapers melt with the sun into the evening.
New York City - Skyline at Dusk
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.
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 - Sunset - Long Island City - Queens
Sunsets are skipped heartbeats:
full of light and suspended in time,
they are the trailed off, long ends
of phrases uttered
by the city and sky
when faces are close
and kisses are imminent.
This is a view of the skyline of midtown Manhattan including the Empire State Building and the Chrysler Building. It was taken during a brilliant sunset that emerged after a rather dramatic rainstorm. The rooftops in the foreground are the rooftops of Long Island City, Queens. To the right is the Queensboro Bridge (also known as the 59th Street Bridge, and the Ed Koch Queensboro Bridge).
