New York City Skyline and Queensboro Bridge at Dusk

There is something so magical about dusk in New York City. 

After the sun sets for the evening, the city is a symphony of lights reaching their crescendo at the same time as the night pulls itself over the rooftops and skyscrapers below. 

And if you squint just a little, 

all of the lights twinkle 

like fireflies in an urban forest.

This is a 15 second exposure that I took with my Sony A99 while standing on the roof of Z Hotel in Long Island City, Queens. The rooftops of Long Island City sit in the foreground. To the right is the Queensboro Bridge (also known as the 59th Street Bridge, and the Ed Koch Queensboro Bridge). The skyline of midtown Manhattan including the Empire State Building and the Chrysler Building sit in the distance.

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).

Bare branches against a winter sky. Socrates Sculpture Park. Astoria, Queens. New York City.

Stuck somewhere between the heart and lips pushed down by the echoes of memory echoes loss: the mirror reflection of connection.

We spend our lives shedding pieces of ourselves: molted hopes and dreams that slough off into the thoughts of everyone we meet like stardust falling to the Earth from distant stars.

These are the pieces we hold on to: the pieces that are part of us that can never be put back into the same place again after they dissolve into nothing.
