New York City - Chinatown Rooftops with Graffiti - Sunset

—-

New York City,

you are:

the tears that I blink back when I stare into  the sun as it slides away from the remains of the day into night;

the dreams which are held close to my heart bound only by my imagination;

the sliver of hope that I have clung to in my darkest times as if hope was the only ledge I could hold onto at the edge of the universe sitting between the chasm of nothingness and being;

the city that holds the key to the rest of the world.

—-

These are the rooftops of an area of lower Manhattan located between the Lower East Side and Chinatown known as Two Bridges due to its proximity to the Manhattan Bridge and the Brooklyn Bridge. Taken with the Sony A7R this past weekend.

New York City - Sunset - Chinatown - East Broadway

Springtime:

when the sun 

slips down 

past the clouds

dizzy and

as light as

the weight

of the fuzzy 

well-worn fringes

of a dream

just before eyelashes

open like a curtain

revealing a 

dawdling night sky.

In preparation for my upcoming trip to Paris this week, I am now in the possession of  the Sony a7R with the Zeiss Vario-Tessar T* FE 24-70mm F4 lens (thank you Sony!) which I took out for a walk and promptly fell in love with all in the span of the first few shots I took with it. 

I walked over the Manhattan Bridge and Brooklyn Bridge and it was a pleasure to capture the beautiful spring light that poured over East Broadway. It’s incredible how the sun’s light changes so drastically from season to season. Spring light is one of my favorites. After the brutal winter we had in New York City (I am in denial that it may snow again tomorrow), it was nice to bask in the spring glow.

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 - 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).
