  4. This is a really nice photo. I like the way the angles of the buildings converge and then the curves of the tree contrast not only in texture but color. Thanks for sharing.

  5. There's an old story about the guy who spent his entire life looking down at the ground hoping to find a few pennies that people had inadvertently dropped. By so doing, he missed all the glory of the sky and all the possibilities that confronted him head-on.

    This would be a good example of why we should continually lift our eyes upward. Visions abound. This is one of them!

  6. It always pays to look up otherwise we miss so much beauty. This is indeed like a pen and in drawing and it's exquisite! Thanks for the reminder, Daryl!

  17. Keep looking up!!! I love the shapes of trees in winter--and yes, it could be pen and ink, until that lovely warm brick. Perfect.

  18. a very lovely sky watch entry...like the b/w aspect with an itty bitty touch of color...perfect.
    also a huge fan of tree branches and limbs :)

  19. I love branches against the sky and I like that the color is washed out in this one. Good angle, too.

  20. Love this! It even looks cooler with the little snow effect you have on your blog!

  21. I love that you had the building color shine thru
    makes the tree even more dramatic

  22. This is a great photo, even more so to me who, while waiting for it to load up, thought it was vertical trees all leaning to the right as if bent by wind. We see that around here from bad storms, but it's probably not prevalent in NYC.

    GREAT photo, with lots to see and multiple ways of seeing them.

  24. What Mojo said. And...Something you do with angles just captures the grandness of the city and exceeds it. Amazing, always.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Great angle! That one is frameable, but then so are most of your photos.

    ReplyDelete
