The Late Afternoon Sun of New York in June
I love that very special late afternoon light New York can provide
when the sun lines up "just so" with the urban canyons.(*)
That was the case along E 26th St in Manhattan, on the northern
edge of Madison Square Park on this June afternoon in 2017.
After exploring the park (**) for the first time, I was dining with a friend at
one of the outdoor tables of a restaurant facing the park along 26th.
Fortunately, I was facing west, as the low angle of the sun added an
inviting glow to the silhouetted pedestrians,creating wonderful shadows,
while delineating the scaffolding and turning the sidewalk to gold.
The photo makes its first appearance here.
