photoblog image Harlem Space Race

Harlem Space Race

Harlem looks pretty nice...mostly. There were one or two spots on the open top bus tour that I maybe would not have fancied walking around. But that said, I felt safer in NY than I usually do in London.

Another shot from the boat, this time of the West side of Uptown. Some apartment buildings in Harlem. The size and the colours are just awesome, and I was a bit lucky that the sun was just creeping through the haze here.

I got an idea in my head that a load of the uptown buildings didn't actually have water towers atop them, but they were infact competing to be the first Harlem building to put a political activist into space.

Lol at title. I like the shot for the combination of colours but it also seems a bit dull or muted, was that intentional? (On my monitor anyway)

Lovely light! It makes this a rather appealing view of Harlem, something that is more difficult to come by at street level.
Fantastic light in the sky. This does look rather surreal with all those water towers pointing skywards. Have been wondering where you got to and now I know! Welcome back.

I like the light that I see here! And the water tanks are really showy!

If you had seen my posts from last April, you would know that I started collecting those water towers! I LOVE them. You also see those in the Spiderman movies. smile I LOVE this photo.
