Skywatch Friday


This is a photograph I took for Skywatch Friday of the top of a building in Greenwich Village. What I personally like about this photo is how wispy the clouds are above the building.

Indeed, the wispy clouds above the solid geometry of the building make for nice contrast. As "Lily Hydrangea" wrote, it is a moody image - and "Louis" likes it!

For some reason I think of a ferry boat when I first look at this shot and would never guess it was taken in the city. It looks like a dark and stormy night on the water - I know I am strange - but come on ya love me I know;0

This is wonderful. The B&W defintely makes the photo more moody looking. Happy Sky Watch Friday.

This is such a great black and white photo. It makes the sky even more dramatic. Lovely.

Lydia said...

Nice angle in this shot. And the clouds are dreamy. The idea of Skywatch Friday is wonderful and I wonder who started it and when...
