NEW YORK, NEW YORK – This is an interesting time of year light wise. Sunrises and sunsets are much further North than you expect – on Manhattan this means that the sun appears to rise to the North because Manhattan is actually “tilted” 29 degrees to the East. The consequences: sunrises happen where you don’t expect them and sunlight illuminates interior scenes in unexpected ways. I’ll be exploring this phenomenon over the next couple of days. Anyway here’s sunlight in a place in our bedroom where I hadn’t seen it before, shot with my Sony NEX-7 and a 35mm Summilux lens.

On this day one year ago: Look up! A nice angle on the Chrysler Building taken with medium format.
