"The Camera Eye"

Grim faced and forbidding
Their faces closed tight
An angular mass of New Yorkers
Pacing in rhythm
Race the oncoming night
They chase through the streets of Manhattan
Head first humanity
Pause at a light
Then flow through the streets of the city

They seem oblivious
To a soft spring rain
Like an English rain
So light, yet endless
From a leaden sky

The buildings are lost
In their limitless rise
My feet catch the pulse
And the purposeful stride

I feel the sense of possibilities
I feel the wrench of hard realities
The focus is sharp in the city

Wide angle watcher
On life's ancient tales
Steeped in the history of London

Green and grey washes
In a wispy white veil
Mist in the streets of Westminster
Wistful and weathered
The pride still prevails
Alive in the streets of the city

Are they oblivious
To this quality?
A quality
Of light unique to
Every city's streets

Pavements may teem
With intense energy
But the city is calm
In this violent sea

Great choice, but I can't find any photographs that in any way match the lyrics. DOH!!
If I see a shot to join in, I'll post it asap. :-)
Good luck to all those that take part and I promise to vote!

Of course, in my photo the "pride [that] still prevails" is pride Glaswegians have in their city. Commonwealth Games 2014 - get in there! :-)

#1: 1

Thanks very much. That photo pf London was quite lucky given my camera's poor ability to take pictures in low light.

A new competition has been posted.

Kind of a late but I thought this was apropos. This photo is actually inspired by Rush and is part of a series I'm working on for my photography class.
