Skywatch Friday




Photobucket

A shot of Broadway on a rainy night. I just love the color of the not-quite-dark sky. It was almost 5 o'clock PM, no longer daylight savings time.

Thanks to the Skywatch Friday team:

I love visiting the city but I still would be afraid to live there. Too bright and loud.

Living where I do, I sometimes forget about scenes like this. Thanks for the reminder that there are Real Big Cities alive somewhere in the world. (Alive-alive-OH!)

Dear teach ary,
for the first time in my life, I consider going to New York.
A beautiful stage..
(You really should do something about the unstoppable amount of bad NY crime movies and TV series. They for sure are no good tourist ad.)
Have a nice week-end,
From Felisol

I love how vibrant these colors are. Taking pictures at night is a lot harder than people think-but this one is amazing!
