Skylines

Looking east along Spring Street, lower Manhattan. Early morning, with the sun just breaching the horizon, barely scraping the rooftops of Brooklyn and radiating its orange glow upwards through the humid air, silhouetting the East Village water towers.

I'd looked at this scene for weeks, mainly because it was my route to and from the subway, and waited for the right time of day to get this image. I think I used the 70-200 Toyo lens on one of the Pentax ME's.

I can't for the life of me remember where this next picture was taken. I know it was at dusk, and it was on the west side of Manhattan. It's a Mobil station, and it has to near West Street, since the building poking up in the middle is the south tower of the Trade Center. It might be on Canal Street; as a quick look at Google Maps has a vacant lot in front of two buildings with a water tower that fits the bill.

Longtime readers may also recognize these two pictures from another website of mine, where they appeared crudely Photoshopped together under the title Fireworks Factories.
