pics : nyc after dark
empire state building, un, chrysler building
when i took the photography class this spring everyone loved taking photos at night. it's a challenge for me. once i get home it's really hard to get me to go out, again. i don't sleep that well and get up early. i don't even like to go out for dinner. but, you can capture wonderful images at night. lots of color and mood.
so, this saturday, we went out to dinner over in long island city (home of julie powell), which also has a wonderful view of manhattan. there were so many people in the park and many had cameras while they waited for sunset at around 8:00 pm. next time, i think it would be interesting if there were clouds and i'll bring a small tripod so i can slow down the shutter speed, let in more light and eliminate all camera shake.
being out in the evening was definitely a lot of fun. it was even interesting just to go to the supermarket at that hour :).
pepsi sign seen in julie & julia, but during daytime in the movie.
cranes built in the 1920s to load and unload railroad car floats.
detail of the cranes.
detail of the cranes from another side.
times square can be seen just down the middle below the chrysler building. i'd love to go there next time.
this doesn't really fit with this set, but i love neon signs and they make them here.
