COLD METAL, BRIGHT LIGHTS

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

It was a cold winters day – the first day of the year two thousand and nine. I took a deep breath and let the cold air enter my lungs. There is something about the significance of a January first – I feel the tone and how you spend the day is a peep into the way the year will go.

On Jan 1, 2009 I took a lot of pictures. I went to Top of the Rock and looked out onto the city that now call home. I did this with those closest to me – both friends and family. I watched “doubt” which was an awful movie with a great cast!

Who knows what my activities of Jan 1, 2009 tell of my year ahead. I look forward to my last post of the year and wonder if any parallels can be drawn between this day and the year that would have passed. I guess we will see.

I took this picture at Rockefeller Center – There are so many things to capture on film there. I thought instead of clicking the obvious Christmas tree below or the scenic vista from top of the building; I would focus on the simple light structure that everyone ignored. Happy New year all.

January always points the way. To Spring and warmer weather. Start the year wondering what to do. Hike. Beach. Travel. Not that winter is all bad. Skiing anyone. jde

A keen observer always has an eye for spotting something most people may neglect, so no surprises that you spotted a great picture there :-)

I love the picture and the title!

love this shot...it's more like metal and light...i.e. the way you've captured the light, it seems more like warm colours with metal than bright lights. Ladki me talent hai!m
