  1. The Empire State Building might have been superceeded in height but it is still highly recogniseable.

  2. It is a gritty shot, I mean that it is like a "Rocky" kind of building, as in Yo, Adrian.

  3. Iconic.

    But not ironic.

    I need a gin and tonic.

  4. I never fail to see a water tower in virtually all shots of the city skyline.

  5. Nifty, Daryl. I love the contrast between all the verticals and the horizontals and then the jagged drippings on the roof's edge of the near building...

  6. Love to see that beautiful old building in the middle of that glass monstrosity and the construction.

  14. You do these so well. The play of light and dark, the intersecting lines, the shadows, the tall vs. the short...

    It really works well, Daryl! Just superb!

  20. I like the view! I would never sleep if I lived there . . . so much to photograph . . . so many angles and light plays.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I love the layout of the black & white, but love it even more all art-y in your header!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Wonderful shot! I really need to do some black and white shooting!

    ReplyDelete
  23. The Empire State Building gives the photo a sort of crown, if you will...peeking out, saying "here I am".

    I also like the dribs of color washing down on the building on the left.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Ideal for monochrome - lots of vertical and horizontal lines - nice perspective.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I imagine looking at the famous Empire State Building becomes an everyday - not really noticeable - sight - much like looking at the Rocky Mountains or the ocean every single day.

    Still - for those of us who don't get to see any of this regularly - it is an amazing sight.

  26. Looks like a shot from an old movie. I remember standing on the deck at the Empire State building about 20 years ago. What a thrill. My one and only trip to NYC. :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. So many contrasts - texture, size, shade... Not a standard view!

    ReplyDelete
  28. A great shot with lots of different angles and shades.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Great photo, as usual! I love your vision of the city.

    ReplyDelete
  30. nice! however, I like the header rendition even more!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I must admit that I've never seen the Empire State Building from this angle. You live in such a photogenic world.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I don't see it. I don't see your siggy.

    I'd like a gin and tonic, too, please.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Can't WAIT to see that!

    And do get Kate a G & T when you see her. She obviously needs one...or two... ;-)

  39. Lovely monochrome. I really love it and it reminds me of the times before colour photos (except for the very rich)

    ReplyDelete
  40. Here from Davids POTD for which mucho congratulations. I love this shot and monochrome is so...moody and Deco.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Love the contrast between the stateliness of the background and the grit of the foreground. Distance hides dirt, I tell ya.

    Nice one!

    ReplyDelete
