manhattanhenge is a annual celestial phenomenon that i was fortunate to enjoy this week.  the setting sun aligns with the manhattan street grid expressing a seldom seen relationship between the natural and the manmade worlds.  the harmony of these disparate, sometimes incomprehensible entities [avast living city, and burning stellar bodies] can be transcendent, drawing you in as the world around you fades away…

i’m sure i got few dirty looks while i stood in the middle of 96th street juggling 3 cameras, but i couldn’t help it.  i still  get giddy witnessing these sorts of  awe inspiring natural (?) events of which many people are simply unaware.
