This photo was taken one year ago today. I like the perspective and how the light hits the street and splits the scene up a bit, one might even say contrasty, but subtly. This makes me a bit nostalgic for snow, but then again last winter brought so much of it that by spring we had had it with winter. However, there is no denying the beauty in the flaky stuff even after some human meddling. Let it snow, let it snow (kinda, sorta).
East River (near the United Nations), New York City
One of the amazing benefits of living on the East River are the views. I was walking my dog (see previous post) one weekend and this fog started rolling in on the East River. It's not the first time I have seen this since moving here, but usually it covers everything so that you can see nothing. On this day, it split between top and bottom if you will, allowing for a peek through the clouds of the fog. This made for interesting composition opportunities, not to mention that bad weather shots tend to be more interesting, especially in cities. Anyway, like so often occurs, I didn't have a camera with me. Yes, I had my cell, but that wasn't going to cut it. I dropped the dog off, grabbed my gear and starting hitting the shutter as I lept out of my building lobby because I knew the fog would go away in an instant. I managed to get this shot before it totally shifted and was gone forever.
