Third Avenue at night

It’s Autumn and the days are getting shorter.  Oddly enough, the nights are lasting longer.  Whoda thunk?

I don’t often post night pictures if for no other reason than I refuse to fiddle with the camera settings to get the optimal exposures right.  It’s not that my little Sony takes bad pictures, they just aren’t optimal.

On a recent evening, I decided to do some local wanderings and snapped a few pictures.  New York City at night is always cool.

Moments after I took that picture, I heard a siren.  Hey, it’s NYC and there are always sirens.  The ambulance came by within moments.

It seems one of those facts-of-life that here I was having a pleasant evening and someone else was having a particularly terrible one.  Just a few feet apart and altogether different perceptions of the world.
