New York City Skyline - Lower Manhattan Skyscrapers after Sunset

—-


New York City is magical

during the pause between night and day

when the sun dips behind the skyline

shining its light out through the twinkling eyes of the buildings.

This time of day is when 

dreams roll off the tongue, 

with a slow-motion exhale 

at the end of a word

in a phrase

that trails off 

without end. 

—-

 I love the moments just after sunset when the seasons are changing. The sky sinks into a momentary pause before the night sky pulls itself over the city. When everything is devoid of color on cloudy days, the tiny bits of color during these moments that come from the lights in the skyscrapers and the color that streaks across the bone-chilled-grey sky reach right into the heart.

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 - The Brooklyn Bridge and Manhattan Skyline

—-

Night is

a lullaby

with dreams

that hang

onto the end

of every phrase

like the sky hangs

onto the stars

above a city

full of light.

This was taken late last winter with my Sony A99. It’s interesting how skylines date images. In this case, 1 WTC was still in the process of being built.

New York City

When everything else slips away, it’s the manifestations of dreams that our fingertips cling to the most.

Wishing everyone a very Happy New Year. 

2013 was one of the most brilliant years of my life on so many levels. It was also one of the most soul-crushing years of my life. And yet, when I look back, I don’t know if I would trade any of the moments away for others. 

I already feel nothing but butterflies-in-the-stomach about 2014. There are a lot of huge things in the works regarding my photography and writing that I will announce in due time. It’s enough to keep my head spinning with endless possibility when I lay my head down on my pillow at night though. And that’s a feeling I want to wrap up and bottle to share with the world. 

May you all experience endless butterflies-in-the-stomach moments  in 2014.
