NYC from LIC I've never been much of a morning person, but having a baby sure changed that. It also meant it was time for a 2 bedroom apartment and our days in Tribeca studio were over. So back in August we found ourselves in a nice new place in Long Island City, with a great view of Manhattan. Since I'm on the early shift with the baby, I'm suddenly witness to the sunrise regularly for the first time in my life too. Every day it's a different light show as the sun hits the city across the East River. It's almost as if Manhattan is a distant mountain range, complete with alpen glow some days. As a photographer it would just be negligent not to shoot what's happening out there. It's also a unique opportunity to try and make different images of the same subject from the same vantage point. I have the luxury of time on my side. Many people come to the park in front of my building with their cameras to capture a lot of these same moments, but then they go home and they invariably miss what happened later or the next morning or week. It's all about waiting for light. Since I live there I get to pick the moments when things are the most dramatic. So here are a few of the many pictures, all taken from the same spot on my balcony, that have become the project - NYC from LIC.
