New York City - Night - Times Square from Above

At night, 

while we soar

through the streets,

flying past buildings,

navigating through

alleys below,

the city soars

along with us,

its neon lights

pulsating to 

the night’s 

heartbeat,

streets winding

like synapses

as we 

dance in

each other’s

dreamscapes,

This is a 2.5 second long exposure taken with my Sony A7R while I was high above Times Square at midnight one night. Truly a breathtaking view.

Times Square. New York City.

Times Square is its own universe. 

It’s New York City filtered through cinematic dreams and commercially-tinged aspirations wrapped up in flashing lights and colorful billboards. There is a familiarity to it that is tinged with a wild-eyed estranged quality that makes it all the more alluring. 

And when a yellow New York City taxi cab drives by at the speed of light under all the flashing lights, it’s hard not to smile.

Taken with a Sony a99 using the Miniature setting creative style. The Sony a99 has around twenty different creative styles and while I usually shoot in RAW format and do my editing after the fact, I have to say that the Miniature setting was just way too fun to play with especially in Times Square! The results are similar to a Tilt Shift Lens (or I suppose a Lens Baby as well) and you can adjust where you want the focus and blur to end up.
