Standing on the Westside Highway at the end of 34th Street. Empire State Building on the right. Javits Center on the left. 8-second exposure after the 10-second timer. Illuminating myself with my bike light.

    It almost looks like you are broadcasting the news.
    "Citybumpkin, live from New York." Very cool.

    I like the bright colors in this
  • Russ Seidel 7y

    New York looks so empty - must be really late...or early.
  • (Stew) 7y

    Thanks for the comments everyone!

    the blinking bike light is brilliant. I love your light paintings and I've tried to copy them a number of times, but I've never gotten anything I'm happy enough with to bother posting.

    Hi, I'm an admin for a group called Face Time, and we'd love to have your photo added to the group.

    i love the light you created. know the block well.

    very cool.
    I like the bike light, and the New Yorker sign behind you.

    you do look like a news reporter here.
    bike correspondent maybe?

    CM— Thanks! I have some trade-secrets I'll share with you, if you're interested.
    Pinky—Great. Thank you. It is a very distinctive street. Bizarre how homey a city street can feel.
    Shmendubart— Thanks. I can totally see Brad's and your observation about the correspondent-look. That could be a whole subseries of my 365! "Citybumpkin, bike correspondent, reporting live from Midtown Manhattan", etc.
