The dark of the dawn, a recent Sunday morning.
East River. New York City.
* * * * *
very nice work !!
I especially like #3 yet the whole set works wonderfully as series and they remind me of Atget’s early morning walks around the streets of Paris.
There’s a lot of color in those black-and-white shots. I can even hear the sounds.
Especially ‘like’ the third one, but this whole group is especially nice.
Really, so so beautiful. The second photo is really inspiring.
Dreamy shots Patti. A city can feel so different at that hour!
Thank you so much andreiplimarici!
Love B&W photos. One thing I’ve never mentioned; The typeface you use in the blog. It adds something to the visuals.
Tom, the typeface is as simple as the “preformatted” selection headed under Paragraph of the New Post dashboardy gizmo!
I love your black and white photo’s. They capture the essence of city life. Someday I
will get up early and photography the break of day.
Super photo’s …
Isadora, thank you so much and can’t wait to see what the break of day brings you. And us! You won’t ever regret it.
Outstanding. Stories about to happen. Beautiful shots, Patti. Did you have an afternoon nap?
Oh my goodness Richard, there is more of this day to come . . .
How I wished I had visited New York when younger. Fortunately you are giving me a wonderful chance sauntering through that magnificent city. Have you ever been to Amsterdam or Sydney (Australia)?
Lately whenever we get news of the US we see row after row of hordes of people going through massive halls at gun exhibitions lovingly fondling large guns.
Gerard, please know it is never too late to do anything, let alone visit NY. Yes I have been to Amsterdam several times and have loved every minute there. As for Sydney, oh my goodness where to start on my times in that city of Sydney . . . . and, as for those gun shopping hordes, they are as much of a mystery to so many in this country!
I love, love, love them.
Waiting for the pleasure of your return visit!
lyrical! could be the intro of a movie – following someone, who comes home very late …
Frizz, that you should say this – there were writings of imploring passions in the snow from one end of town to the other, which seemed to me to be of the same hand . . .
Oh, these are exquisite. Thank you!
Vickie, of such good taste, thank you!
The most fabulous photos of New York I have ever seen. A truly refreshing pause.
Love the phrase “the dark of the dawn”
Oh Annie, thank you so much!!!!
I love the line of lights and the dusting of now. It’s a creative invitation to take a leisurely, thoughtful walk.
Marylin, thank you so much for your kind words! The walk is yours, any time you feel like it!
I expect it looks colder than it was!
Not Canada cold that’s for sure!
I love what you’ve captured … I feel the beautiful stillness … you are very talented!
and you are very sweet, I am so happy to share the stillness with you!
the view from your camera … from “you” always inspires me. I can’t thank the powers that be enough for giving me the chance to connect with you.
Hey! What Atget did for Paris you’re beginning to do for New York!
Not sure about that but thank you so much Judith! 🙂
where’d everyone go!!!??? Excellent scenes!
Thank you Derrick! Those quiet streets, it does happen!
that somehow shocks me!! 🙂
And did you get up early, or hadn’t yet been to sleep!!? 🙂
Derrick, I forgot to mention that this was my very early morning start which resulted in the previous post, 5th Avenue, Times Sq etc. I can’t remember the last time I had such a late night watching the sun come up where fun was the driving cause!
Good for you!! Gotta live a little every now and then. 😉
You have made some strong statements Patti. I particularly like the clarity and geometry of these cityscapes. The stillness too.
Thank you Philippa. The stillness was certainly worth the very early start!
nice and cool 🙂
Very cool, thank you Joshi!
These are stunning, Ms. K… just beautiful (might be some of my favorites so far!)!
I love the leading lines, sparkling lights, incredible geometry / shapes…
very, very cool!!! Wonderful!
Wow, thank you so much SiG! The geometry of the dark is so different to that of daylight and it is always such fun to explore, don’t you think? As long as the shadows stay still that is . . . .
Stunning lines & b&w!
Thank you SF, I have the snow to thank!
I’ve awakened to some cold steel Sundays the first photo brings to mind from my past… Never been that close to the East River, but, I can’t count the times I’ve seen the spot you captured in pic #3 on TV, and in movies.. Lovely Art…You rock with that camera.
The stories that river could tell, fact and fiction, although it s always daunting to see it so heavily featured in those “end of world Tom Cruise alien” films etc. Love to hear some of your cold steel Sunday stories! And thank you so much for your comment, I am truly touched!
Looks amazing for B and W Patti, Brilliant my friend 🙂
You are very kind, thank you Jake!
Fantastic Patti! There is such powerful, portent energy in your work, it’s like a hand reaches right up to you and pulls you to it..love it..
Excellent selection of B&W images. I love that Tugboat pushing its way up river with a days work ahead.
I’m always taken aback by noir photography ! You’re good !
such evocative images, as always! thanks for sharing.
Fluid, swooping curves in the first and last shot, and I really like that tugboat.
Sunday Morning . . . http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Afn0h2M6eTg
These have left me contemplating for a while… No. 3 is my favourite too, and yes there is a feel of Paris in it. What a terrific work, Patti…. quite poetic 🙂
An example of what miracles we can see if we are up early enough. Beautiful.
Nice…very very nice! Antonio
You are very kind and thank you so much Antonio!
