Manhattanhenge

Manhattanhenge

On May 29th I trekked into New York City for “Manhattanhenge”. A twice year event first commented on by Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson comparing it to Stonehenge. I had emailed Dr. Tyson (7-14-07) when I spotted his photo on the Astronomy photo of the day page (NASA website) and he told me where he took it. So I headed to that spot and was surrounded by people. Since Dr. Tyson first mentioned Manhattanhenge all those years ago, it has become a New York event with crowds gathering and standing in the middle of the road. (Guess they forgot people get run over in the city.) As you know, the day started out beautiful. Not a cloud in the sky. Then at 7:30PM I spotted a wisp of a cloud and, after standing for 3 hours (you can’t leave your spot), I felt the “uh-oh” moment. Sure enough, the sun was blocked. So I present my “Sun Hiding Behind the Clouds Manhattanhenge”.

Brooklyn Bridge

The “B” of the “BMW” of New York City Bridges. (Brooklyn, Manhattan, Williamsburg).
I was on a boat ride on the Hudson River when I took this photograph. I’m not one to go to extremes using Photoshop.
I tend to use the program with the same intent as when I had a darkroom – control of exposure/contrast/spotting/sharpness/etc. –
but on this occasion I thought it’d be fun push the envelope.

Piano Man

piano, music, musician, Washington square Park, Manhattan, NYC, New York City

A street musician in Washington Square Park in New York City plays his piano.
I found it amazing because the street musicians that I see usually play an instrument
that is also simple to carry – a guitar or brass instrument.
How easy could it possibly be to roll a baby grand piano down the street?
