Manhattanhenge Sunset

Good and funny/sad!
Your photo is good and documentary, Strykapose! The sad part is that many of those people lining up to shoot the sunset haven't seen a real sunset at a horizon without being surrounded by skyscrapers, nor without having a phone in front of them.
The funny part is that I bet a whole lot of them are using the flash... :)

Thank you DominoDude...So true. NYC is surrounded by skyscrapers with many more going up at any moment. It'll probably get to a point where the city will live in shadows...with the only light coming from tourist's camera flashes.

Looking at the other side of the coin.....I find this a refreshing sunset and it sets it apart from a lot of other "sunsets schmunsets" you see in the country or at the beach.The reflections from glass, steel and alloys, silhouettes of living and static objects, light, shadow, behaviour....all add to the mix.  So, not sure it is sad really....just the same drink from a different bottle.   The fact that is is unexpected makes it all the more enjoyable for me.  Living in (or close to....) London, I see some fantastic sunsets over the city which would not look half as good if I had seen it from the countryside or beach.  Although "good" is obviously to personal taste/preference for city/country living.

One thing I do hate though is when someone holds a bloody iPad up in front of your face obstructing your view.  There ought to be a switch that cuts off power as soon as it is raised above shoulder height.

Landscape / Wood Norton Hotel
« on: September 29, 2014, 07:52:34 PM »
Dunno where this fits so I chose Landscape.

The Wood Norton Hotel in the Cotswolds.  Took these early morning.  The owner was so pleased he purchased a number of them for a mutually satisfactory figure which included a further night +B&B +dinner+wine

The rays of light come from BBC security lamps shining through trees at the rear.

thanks for the comments all, appreciated

Usually I just snap away regardless, unless there is good resin photogenically to ask for a pose.

people just do not notice....they are too busy.

Street & City / Street Candids - Bangla Youth
« on: September 16, 2014, 10:13:26 PM »
A regular event.......I am spotted sporting a camera. "Take our picture". You will regret it I say, once I start I don't stop. Eventually, they beg to be allowed to go home....and I have what I want.  There was a bottle of cheap brandy feeding their bravado, and they spoke in that peculiar Bangla-Gangsta accent with all the hand jive moves.  All in all, they were a reasonable bunch and respectful of my vast seniority over their precocious youth
