I took this picture last night on the bridge, from pretty much the same place as the earlier photo. I feel the two pictures really explore themes of night and day, gray vs. color, good meets evil. Or, it really just looks cool. I was trying to take a clear pic of the Empire State building which is apparently, for the first time!, having different color schemes on each of its sides to represent different countries performing in the Olympics. Can't you tell from this picture?
It is the embodiment of the Olympic spirit, no?
I need to go dodge another rainstorm now. This seems to be my life these days, tracking storms on wunderground.com and wondering if there is enough of a clear patch on the radar screen so I can ride my bike home. No wonder these blog posts are so exciting!
ps: first clap of thunder, huge flash of lightning. Never a good sign.
