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
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.
New York City - Empire State Building and Skyline
We stood there,
your hand in mine,
as the skyscrapers
dotted the horizon
like nervous heartbeats
syncopated in time
to the city’s nervous
And as the sun
caressed our faces
with its warmth,
over the buildings
towards the horizon
infinite and full
This is a view of the Empire State Building and New York City skyline taken with my Sony A99 while high above the rooftops and skyscrapers of midtown Manhattan. If you wait for just the right cloudy day, you can catch a glimpse of the few moments during sunset when the sun pries the clouds open and lets its light wash over the city in waves.
