Downtown New York City Skyline at Dusk
25 Dec 2010, by Max Pace
Finally got the shot which I had been wanting for a while. Now this does feel like Gotham, with the World Financial Center and downtown skyscrapers.
Love how the night sky came out (have only brightened it a little).
I look at this picture and imagine a whirlwind of anxious activity inside the offices, the billion dollar deals, the power struggles, the high stake gambles and the high wire performances. And turning fortunes. And how the buildings shield everything, yet portray power and riches (and greed for many).
Those who find this interesting might well read, 'The Bonfire of the Vanities' by Tom Wolfe, a gritty, sobering and almost tragic account of New York high life
