Ascend

Taking a break from my Japan shots for today. This is a close up of the September 11 Tribute in Lights installation. Its been raining pretty hard in NYC, causing the water to form a rainbow on the lights. Check out this video to learn more about the installation and how it came to be.

    This is way cool - the rain gives it an extra something and adds to the abstraction as well. Nicely framed, I'd have no idea what this was if I hadn't read the description.

    Looks like a very metallic light, almost like a beam from a UFO, or is this just my imagination running away with me ;-)

    I tried taking pics last night from our neighborhood. The clouds were so low and the lighting so eerie from the Brooklyn side. I couldn't get the right shot and became frustrated but then thought, "Faisal will get a way better picture than me" and that made me feel happier. I'm glad I was right. This is so beautiful :)

    Thanks all!

    I wish it wasnt raining as I had hoped to get some decent panorama shots from the Brooklyn or Exchange Pl. in NJ. But you gotta make the best out of what you got I guess.

    this is a fantastic shot. so abstract, so silent, and so powerful.

    wow, somehow the rain & mist gave the lights some sort of texture.. nice idea having a closeup of it too.. :D
