city lighting


The combination of  artificial and natural light  in this city often gives the early evening a surreal quality. Here, the leftover holiday light hangs seemingly magically;  it's surrounded by the cooler light of the newly fluorescent street-light bulb, all set against the beautiful bright blue of the winter evening sky.  And I thank goodness for  New York's  stubborn imperfection, the street light on the left is not working,  creating a nice asymmetry to put you a little off balance.
