New York City Skies


Beautiful sunny skies in New York City this week! Here is a reflection of the Chrysler Building. This photo is straight out of the camera, but the reflection makes it look like an abstract, doesn't it? Sharing with http://weekendreflection.blogspot.com/, where every weekend we post reflections.


Here is the gold roof top of the New York Life Building. It shines like the sun in a clear blue New York sky. Sharing with http://mytownshootout.blogspot.com/, where the theme this weekend is weather.


Here is the top of the Empire State Building in all its glory. Sharing with http://www.pixeldustphotoart.com/. The topic this week is to share our thoughts on what art means to us. To me, creativity opens the window to new heights. Art is truly a gift, allowing us to see the world with different eyes and a new perspective.

Enjoy my photos and have a wonderful weekend.
May the sky always be blue in your part of the world!

  18. Bello davvero il Chrysler riflesso!
    E si, hai ragione, sembra proprio un'opera astratta.
    Forse di piu' un mosaico, non trovi?

  19. I know I was looking for weather shots, but I like your creativity photo the best, thats alright isn't it. I also snap reflections wherever I see them - they feel like you are entering a parralel universer.

    1. Thank you, Ginger, glad you like the creativity and refection shot. The weather shot was meant in a more metaphorical way. To me, the golden roof against a clear blue sky was like the sun shining. :)
