NYC - Convergence by freezejeans NYC - Convergence by freezejeans
`bookdiva had a terrific recent submission, "Shadows and Lines," [link] which inspired me to dig this one out from the trip to NYC last year...call me Mr. Originality :D

Actually, this was one of my favorite shots and I never did anything with it...so I experimented with colorization and conversion to black and white and ultimately decided to leave it as is, because I love the play of red, green, and blue across it in addition to the line, arch, and shadow craziness on all 3 axes :)

This was taken in the same area as the "Bridges Panorama" shot, and the building on the left has been hollowed out and an artist has created an audiovisual piece out of it. You can hear sounds coming from speakers scattered about, and at night it lights up, although I didn't get to see that :( You can see the building in MapQuest's aerial photo, have a look! [link] You might have zoom in all the way, but hopefully it'll be centered exactly where I was standing ;)

NYC...you can never get tired of photographing it!

I know just where this is, and am feeling so nostalgic! I love the play of light and shadow, the wonderful structural repetition, the light and tones, it's just so wonderful, a beautiful composition/photo, Patrick!

I can understand why shadows and lines made you recall this one, terrific the way the eye is led down the building to the bridge, old vs new - great piece (as usual).

I LOVE how those wires look on the bridge. Cool! They make a pretty neat design. Love the shadow from the building too....plus the angle of that building.
Nice clear, clean pic. :D fav ;)
