New York Spires

St Patrick's Cathedral, Manhattan, New York

Walking the streets of New York City is a photographer's Disney World. Everywhere you look, there is a great shot, whether it be people or buildings. I especially love taking shots of the buildings when they get that warm glow from a fading sun. It's hard not to walk the streets and be constantly looking up for "the shot". Of course, doing that can be very dangerous when walking crowded sidewalks or crossing streets. On this particular day, I was heading to St Patrick's Cathedral to take some shots inside the church. As I approached the cathedral, I noticed the golden glow in the building beside it. As I looked at the spires that were mostly in the shade, I thought that the contrast between the two structures made a wonderful image.
