"And New York is the most beautiful city in the world? It is not far from it. No urban night is like the night there... Squares after squares of flame, set up and cut into the aether. Here is our poetry, for we have pulled down the stars to our will."
Ezra Pound

I couldn't resist combining the signature billyblancoNYCII uses on skyscraperpage.com with Dennis' images immediately above. Ezra Pound employs no hyperbole . . .

Which is it? "Can't see the forest for the trees" . . .or. . . "Can't see the trees for the forest."
However you remember the saying, when viewing skyscrapers in New York, one can scarcely see the trees for the forest. Photos from the ESB present many challenges beyond the weather. Every photographer is restricted to the same vantage point, and after a while we stop looking at photos from the ESB because they start to look the same.

Dennis has carefully framed his photos to highlight sections of the skyline . . a chance to see a few trees within the forest. I think some people say that New York has an ugly skyline because we are confronted with a blur of tall builidngs that act as a mesa or a table top with few exclamation points. One must look carefully to discover the treasure hiding right before our eyes. Thank you, Dennis, for giving me new eyes to appreciate the city not of my birth but the one I choose to call home.
