New York - Night. Skyline of Lower Manhattan.
New York City is stunning when it is teetering on the brink of midnight without a trace of the day anywhere in sight.
Skyscrapers come to life casting their light over the water like nets; steely-eyed fishermen with gleaming eyes.
And as the wind slow dances across the surface of the water with the city lights, the rest of the world seems to slip away.
This is a 20 second long exposure taken late at night with the Sony NEX-7 overlooking the New York City skyline of lower Manhattan and Pier 17. In this scene: the skyscrapers of the Financial District including the Woolworth Building, 1 WTC (also known as the Freedom Tower), New York by Gehry, and the South Street Seaport.

Ive been meaning to make a post about this for a while now, so here we go.
This is a picture of the copy of ‘Gone with the Wind’ my grandmother owns.
What makes this so special, you ask.
Its first edition.
Drool, book lovers.
