Nice morning pic!
thanks! It’s kind of rare to feel inspired by the “nature” of a city view – but this one struck me at work and so I had to click.
Last night (Saturday) right around midnight the television and lights went out for about a second, then after maybe another ten seconds there was another ‘blink’. All was OK for as long as I was awake after that. My computer was in the middle of shutting down when the first power interruption hastened the process. I checked around and all was OK, nothing important needed to be reset and of cause the battery clock on the wall couldn’t care less. For me this non-event served as a reminder that ‘stuff happens’. Whether the power came back as it did, or stood off for a day it wouldn’t have been much more than a minor inconvenience, but I couldn’t help but wonder how many people out there would be sitting in the dark. With winter not far away, it would be a good time to make sure you have a good working flashlight or 2 (or 3) around with spare batteries and a working battery operated radio. Some basic suggestions can be found at:
When I was working nights in lower Manhattan I would occasionally cart my camera and tripod to the waterfront right above the Staten Island ferry terminal. Forgetting what made the sky so red at sunrise, the view of the Bklyn and Manhattan Bridges could be stunning on some days. Every few minutes the colors would change as the sun slowly rose from behind the buildings. I am sure there are lots of other great spots, but that happened to be real close to where I was working.
