Up in Times Square

10/4/2010:


This image was taken on my trip to New York last week. As i mentioned in my previous post, it rained almost the entire time I was there. This shot was taken around 10:00 at night and the clouds were lower than the tops of the buildings. This is a handheld HDR image.

Formerly named Longacre Square, Times Square was renamed in April 1904 after the New York Times moved its headquarters to the newly erected Times Building, which is now called One Times Square and is the site of the annual ball drop on New Years Eve. Times Square, nicknamed “The Crossroads of the World” and “The Great White Way,” has achieved the status of an iconic world landmark and is a symbol of New York City and the United States.

  1. Neat angle. The colors of the buildings make them look abstract works of art.
