These last few months have been rough, but sometimes this city isn’t so bad. I took this from the roof of our building the other night, while waiting for a GPS signal before a run.

It’s actually two (or maybe three) separate photos that Google helpfully, and without any prompting from me, made into a panorama. So thank you, benevolent electronic overlords. Continue Reading

Photo: A rather dramatic NYC sunset

March 26, 2015 In The News, New York City Comments (0) 566

A massive building fire destroyed three buildings in New York City’s East Village late this afternoon, including my favorite spot to get poutine–but that hardly seems important considering the number of people who were injured and put out of their homes. It took more than 200 firefighters to put out the blaze, and last I heard they were knocking all the buildings down rather than risk an uncontrolled collapse.

I happened to catch the sunset at just the right moment, as the rain clouds (which hung over us most of the day) cleared, leaving Manhattan awash in smoke from the fire and bathing the Empire State Building in visible sunbeams. I’ll refrain from waxing philosophical on this and just say it made for a nice photo. If you think there’s something more to it, feel free to say so in the comments.

Red Sunset over Manhattan

Liz noticed this one first, and luckily I was quick enough with the camera to capture it. Anybody know what those clouds are called?

sklyine6¬†at home sick on Wednesday and going pretty stir crazy, when I happened to notice the sunset had turned the sky a beautiful shade of yellow gold. I grabbed the camera to try and capture it–I’ve been trying to practice working with longer exposures recently–and while I didn’t quite capture the perfect yellow, I did get a few other photos of Manhattan and Long Island City that I’m pretty happy about.

As a note: I don’t make my photography (or any of my other original work) available under Creative Commons, but if you’d like to use it ask me and I will likely give you permission.

Manhattan January Sunset

Beautiful sunset from a few nights ago. I am unfortunately not talented enough with the camera to really do it justice, but this is pretty passable. This is the view from our apartment window, which hasn’t gotten old yet.
