  1. Great bokeh! I’d save it for a rainy day when I was feeling like playing with layers.

    The city of my heart will always be NYC but the city in my part of the world will always be Boston. Stay safe down there, Val.

      cheryl, you’ll have to teach me photoshop and layers. i can see though how this photo would work well with another photo though.

      boston woman,eh? well that’s cool. i haven’t been there in forever!! or wait, have i been? what the?

  2. Val, I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE this photo!

    WOW! It’s soooooooooo cool!

    The next time we getting together, I have to ask you HOW you got this shot because it’s so AWESOME!

    “side note: to me the city will always mean new york city”

      thanks ron. it’s every easy, but you need a camera lens you can manual focus and a large aperture. that is all.

      yes, and are we ever going to meet up in the city. i have an idea. will email yall.

  3. I love the surreal, mysterious quality of this photo. And the shiny colors. Shiny, shiny! Also, I’m jealous that you have a view of NYC, the world’s greatest city, a city that is simultaneously decaying and being reborn every day.

      thanks mike. i do have some pretty good views of the city, mostly on my way to work, but still can get some great views from different parks too. we’re very close to the city, about a 22 minute train ride, not long by car either. decaying and being reborn is just about right. i love it, dirt, crime, crazy peeps and all! okay i don’t like the crime.

    • v says:

      well if you come back for a visit, z, please do let me know i could show you around the city. i mean i will get your behind so lost you’ll hate me for days.

Speak on it!
