I like this picture


Standing in the center of
West 79th Street West End Avenue 8 p.m. 
I feel like an Eagles song
Having missed the Stonehenge-ish sunset 
the night before 
I was intent on getting a sunset. 

Suffice it to say 
once a year 
means 
once a year 
AND
standing in the middle of a busy 4 lane thoroughfare 
getting a shot of the sunset
before 
the traffic light changes 
can be done.

  4. Wow. Used to live in Phoenix, AZ and drivers there would just run the red light and squash you like a bug.

    Nice shot!

  7. I like this picture too. You should get a Golden Frogger Award for this one.

    Your blog is like New York itself; there is so much great stuff to see, and it just keeps coming.
