Empire State Building April 5, 2011 Local sceneryThere is nothing especially striking about this picture. Simply beautiful azure skies pierced by a graceful spire.Just the way I happen to like it.

Though in my mind ESB is it’s most striking when viewed at night (with simple white lighting adorning it) while driving southbound on BQE, right past Koscjushko bridge. Try it – I’m sure you’ll agree 🙂 Ilya Post author April 6, 2011 at 7:52 am As I walk Midtown Manhattan on my way to/from work, I get a look at the ESB daily. Or, rather, nightly, since in the morning I walk mostly away from it. This shot appealed to me first and foremost because I have not seen the building against bright skies in a long time.Plus, the office is relocating downtown. Who knows when I’ll be able to see this view again. Konstantin April 6, 2011 at 10:05 am Cool. I like it. I think another good shot would have been the building with gilded roof as sun striking it. Ilya April 6, 2011 at 6:01 pm Definitely, but hard to catch if you are just walking by 🙂Comments are closed.
