on the street


i tried
 to 
lighten
 brighten
 this up 
but
 the moodiness of the early morning 
remains
 42nd street is a canyon of sorts 
those clouds seem to be pressing down
in a way they are
its been hot humid with periods of heavy rain
can you feel it?

  2. The first thing I thought of, even before I read your comment Daryl, is: wow, those same clouds that press down on you press down on me! I like that thought, you know, that we're not so far apart. The second thing I thought of is: how is it that there are blacked out windows in that blue skyscraper on the right? Are they deep set, balconies maybe? Is it an optical illusion by the angle, the light? Totally cool. :)

  4. Oh, I'm so happy we're back to our NE Oregon summer....85-90 during the daytime and 50's at night! Humidity is back down to the 30's, too.
