My choir rehearsal on Monday was in midtown, near where I used to work, my stomping ground for going on 20 years. I took some photos of my old commute home, and enjoyed being out in that part of the city again.
The reddish brown building is Carnegie Hall and on the far right in the distance is the diamond-studded Hearst Building, home to numerous magazines you know and love.
This photo struck me as the juxtaposition of old and new construction in the city, stone and steel, church and commerce, sacred and profane.
Riding in a cab, I passed by the Julliard School of Music just as the sun was setting and the sky was doing something operatic. The colors. The light.
