Rain, Rain Go Away

I wonder how would it feel to stand on the top of the observation deck at the Empire State Building during Sandy’s gusty winds. Probably not very pleasant. I took this photo back in February of this year as rain storm was passing through NYC, it rained for the most of that day and cleared right when I was walking by ESB, so I decided to go up and see the city. The wind at the top was blowing so hard, it was not pleasant to be there at all. I had to put a lot of pressure on my camera against the wall to reduce the shake for long exposures in the dark.

Hopefully no big damage was done to NYC, all affected states and all the folks living there and traveling through. Currently in DC, the rain and wind is unreal. I had to go get some food from the grocery and got soaked wet after five minutes being outdoors, with rain going almost horizontal, making umbrella not very useful tool.

    Amazing photo! Thank you for your like. I keep thinking about New York also — wondering about the 9/11 memorial – about the trees in Central Park. Happy to see your blog!
