Gotham Before the Dark



I'm coming back from Fairway, the Upper West Side market only a few blocks from this location, and snap this photo, one eye on the lens of my dinky iPhone, the other on the sky, which is about to let loose in torrents of rain, which come not ten minutes later. The light is luminous and threatening; a beautiful combination, not unlike the light you sometimes see onstage which takes the viewer into another world. Dark and wonderful. This is Gotham.

  1. Yes, I agree, that light s lovely – just before all hell breaks loose.

  2. Thank you, Blue. It's chiaroscuro Rembrandt light. Love it when it happens—always unexpectedly.
