This Is Not New Mexico
The sun and the moon are two of the few natural constants we have in New York City and the moon is one of the very few celestial bodies we can see reliably at night - with the powerful ambient urban light, we do not often have nights where many stars and planets are visible. Such is city life.
Today is the full moon. Last night saw some stormy weather and at the tail end, as skies began to clear, we had some spectacular conditions with fast moving billowy clouds providing a constantly changing canvas.
At times like this it is not unusual to see amateur and professional photographers shooting away. A number of us found a choice spot in Washington Square Park where a few leafless trees provided perfect outlines to frame the moon. It's not the Moon Over Hernandez, but hey, I'm not Ansel Adams and This is Not New Mexico :)
