As many of you may know, I am no longer a New Yorker, so please check out my new blog A Library of My Own. If you are just reading Life and Times, you are missing out. Thanks!

Gotham Sky

Since it is officially Autumn in New York and I've been reading spooky stories for Carl's R.I.P III Challenge, I thought I'd post some photographs.

I took these one night going home from somewhere and I thought the sky looked deliciously spooky. Excuse the blurriness in some since I don't have a tripod and I was using the no flash option.

Aren't those clouds great! I got one of my husband and a cool looking building. He actually knows what building that is and who the architect is...I'll have to ask him and post an addendum later.With the building's lights and the creepy clouds...I was in photographer's heaven. Well, a tripod would have been handy.

And then I got carried away with the building. It's just such an odd/beautiful building.

At some point I'm going to have to buy Photoshop and play around with my photos. Hmmm...Christmas is coming up!

Hope you enjoyed the photos!


  1. Those are some awesome pictures! :D

  2. Oh wow, those last shots are just stunning. That building is very unusual, but gorgeous!

  3. I too am a big fan of the Hearst Tower's addition. Striking from up close and far away. It's apparently famous for being "green." Inside is pretty gorgeous, too (I once interviewed for a job there with Redbook, so I know whereof I speak). The bottom part of the building is the original building, built in the '20s, I think.

  4. Cool pictures; I'm almost expecting to see Batman clinging to one of those towers!

    If you want something free to use to play with your photos until somebody takes the hint and buys you a copy of Photoshop, take a look at Gimpshop.

  5. Creeepy. But please tell me that "Autumn in New York" is warmer (and dryer) than Fall in Seattle because I'm coming to NYC next week for work and am really hoping for a teensy bit of sunshine.

  6. I love these pictures! I was born in New York but moved when I was 2. I'm instantly attracted to anything having to do with New York!

  7. Very cool pictures. Thanks for all your advice on NYC, we had a great time and I will put up my photos soon.
