Con Ed - Stuy Cove

Playing with some new filters - this time from OnOne Software. This a view of Manhattan from the Brooklyn side of the East River, looking towards the Con Edison steam plant just south of Stuyvesant Cove / Stuyvesant Town with the ever-beautiful Empire State Building thrown in for good measure;-)  This photo is from July.

New York Life Building

The golden roof top of the New York Life Building lit up at night. The Neo-Gothic building on Madison Ave was designed by Cass Gilbert (same architect who designed the Woolworth Building) in the late 1920s as the home of the New York Life Insurance Company.

Montgomery Street - LES

As part of my conversion from Windows to Mac I'm switching to a different cloud backup strategy for my JPGs (still haven't decided how or where to backup my raw files - a much larger and more expensive issue to deal with). And I'm finally getting around to sorting about 20,000 photos that have been sitting on memory cards. I just started to move my JPGs to a new online site (about 4,000 so far in the past 2 days). This whole process has given me an opportunity to see photos that I passed over when I originally snapped them, either because I wasn't initially happy with them or because I was just too overwhelmed by the number of photos snapped at the time or because I just forgot about them.

This is a photo from two years ago taken from a friend's apartment looking out over Montgomery Street, which runs only about 4 blocks from East Broadway to FDR Drive in the Corlears Hook section of the Lower East Side, Manhattan.
