NYC From Above 1

The life of a city can sometimes best be captured by pointing the lens straight down from high above. You feel the energy and flow of the city—the constant stream of yellow taxis lining the avenues, the waves of pedestrians hurriedly crossing at the change of traffic signals, little figures disappearing into the subway stations, the chorus of honking horns and sirens. The feeling of the city from above completely changes from daytime through twilight and into darkness.
