Sorry for the silent blog 🙂 Life has been busier than the usual crazy and, my dad recently had double bypass surgery. So, two days ago, I took a road trip back home to be with my parents. He is doing quite well and will be home tomorrow. In the meantime, hope you enjoy one of my favorite bridges in New York.
Even on a rainy afternoon, it was still a spectacular view.
For a few moments it did seem like we were in cloud city! The Oculus looks out of place from this height.
From the Oculus we went to the One World Observatory. The forecast called for possible rain and, we could see it coming towards us, carried in the sky by the rainmakers.
Just taking a walk with my fellow digital citizens.
Is that what technology is supposed to do? Huh… I must be using it wrong…
The Oculus gives you an incredible sense of awe and vertical space and, the Oculus also gives you lines. Lots of lines. This is my favorite image from the series of photographs that I took on my recent visit to NY.
I wonder if this structure now qualifies as the “location where the most selfies are taken.” Half the fun of being here was watching all the photography going on!
The impact of space is interesting to me. The way boundaries, limitations, and, definition is brought to space results in an emotional, almost transcendent experience. Apparently, The Oculus has received mixed reviews, but there is no denying that it does have impact.
Oculus: 1. an eye. 2. Architecture. a circular opening, especially one at the apex of a dome.
It is a stunning space. This is the first of a few images from my time in Lower Manhattan.
