New York, New York

New York-1

It was 11:50 pm (note clock on Metropolitan Life Building) and we rushed to the entrance of the Empire State Building.  Visibility was quickly decreasing but I was hoping for a cloud break when we reached the top. This view lasted for just a few seconds.

 

Unalaska or Dutch Harbor?

Packed Up for the Night

Unalaska or Dutch Harbor, Alaska is an enigma!  I loved this rugged fishing village on the coasts of both Unalaska and Amaknak Islands, connected by a bridge called “the Bridge to the Other Side”.  The island and the town are both named Unalaska. There is a body of water called Dutch Harbor and many people refer to the town as Dutch Harbor or simply Dutch. Technically, there is no town named Dutch Harbor.  Have I confused you???

Barcelona Twilight

There’s an electricity along the  tree-lined pedestrian mall of La Rambla.  This vibrant  promenade cuts through the heart of Barcelona and is crowded until the wee hours of the morning.  ‘Looking-up’ helps to reduce the sensory overload and provides some of the more spectacular views of the city.

Tokyo Skytree

A little moody twilight to take the ‘hectic’ out of your day!

Things are’t always what they seem when reality and fantasy change places.

Blue Hour at the Marina

Blue Hour at the Marina
The muted blues and golds provide a peaceful contrast to the previously riotous yellows and oranges of the setting sun.
