Day 8 of ‘A photo a day’ – tip of Manhattan. Such concentration of buildings and all the human activity that goes on in these offices, streets, shops and restaurants is amazing! Manhattan is so dense but it still keeps growing, upwards, to make the most of the space that is in ‘the sky’. In there somewhere is Wall Street, the centre of the American financial industry and that place that many of us hold responsible for the latest and longest financial crisis. The stock exchange didn’t appear so ‘scary’ when we visited it, it was rather un-assuming, but what happens inside is not necessarily visible from the outside.
Back to the image, i like the different lights, blue and yellow-red, the skyline and the appearance of the Statue of Liberty on the right, looking small but with such strong historical importance.
