White by Design 2



The beauty of a new fallen snow is very short lived in the city - this photo was taken as I have written this, and already, most has melted. Nature doles out its pleasures when it sees fit, and in New York City, nature's bounty is often tempered. With a warm infrastructure and the masses walking, white snow soon becomes brown mush and/or melts away. There is little land or surfaces where snow can rest untouched.

On November 17, 2009, I wrote White By Design. That was, however, design by men and women. For the natural version, I invite you to enjoy this view from my window. Contrast it with the same vista taken in the autumn on October 29, 2009, when I wrote Wood, Glass, Brass and Trees. Catch, if you can, nature's White by Design in New York City, because it is beautiful but fleeting :)

Both are wonderful. I cannot decide which I love the most!

I love the colors of autumn, and I love the light of winter!

What a wonderful New York vista.
Rent control is a good thing.
Despite what the landlord may think.

Thanks all - I am blessed with this view and make an effort to appreciate what I have. Trees, parks and greenery are such a special thing in NYC. Not many get to see nature on a daily basis like this in the Concrete Jungle.

A phenomenal view! Perfect in every way imaginable, and it is both good and bad to be such a fleeting moment. Thanks for making this image.
