I like to shoot at night because lights fascinate me. Of course this requires using a high ISO, I think I was shooting at 3200 or more for these photos. New York City of course is a great place to capture lighting at night. I didn’t have much time on this trip, otherwise I would have run around looking for unique architecture with interesting lighting. As it was, I just took a few shots around midnight while walking back from a conference to my hotel room.
This second shot of the buildings particularly intrigues me because the angle causes some optical confusion. It reminds me a bit of an Escher drawing; if you stare a moment at the left side of the photo the building seems to be going in the opposite direction.
