It occurred to me tonight that since moving to my new place in July, I haven’t taken any real photos from my rooftop. Sure, I’ve taken tons of snaps with my phone and plastered them all over facebook, but I’ve neglected the opportunity to really shoot from up there. What a waste! Not that that I did much real shooting up there tonight – I just grabbed my camera, stuck on my 70-200 lens and up I went, but it’s a crystal clear night and you can see forever and I’m pleased with the handful of shots I took. More to come (I have a birds-eye view of the new Freedom Tower / 1 World Trade Center that’s making its way skyward).
This is a handheld shot, so forgive the lack of perfectly clear detail, but that bridge in the background is the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge and it’s 7 miles away!
I couldn’t decide whether I liked the color or black & white version better, so I’m posting both.
