Sound of Silence

Sound of Silence

songography It is Sunday, actually Easter Sunday, so – Happy Easter! – and most people have other things to do. But I like taking photos and sharing them with you right here on my site anytime. Today’s song for Kathy’s You’ll-shoot-your-eyes-out Song-ography is: The Sound Of Silence! by Simon & Garfunkel. You probably don’t know that I used to play guitar a long, long time ago. And when I did there were quite a few Simon & Garfunkel songs in my repertoire, including this one. So, naturally I love it!

My photo for this song was taken last week when I met with friends from Germany visiting New York City. One evening we met for dinner in Hoboken, right at the waterfront. Naturally I wanted to take a photo or two, but – as usual – I did not bring my tripod (hey, I went for dinner, not a photo tour!) and I did not take into account how cold and windy it had gotten – again. We withstood the cold for a whopping five minutes with chattering teeth and fingers. I guess you can imagine what that did to the majority of my photos… Still, this one I think is mostly acceptable, blown out highlights – check, a little soft due to the high ISO (2500) – check, but I think it gets the message across.

New York, New York – silence over the river, with neon lights and streets and people beyond. Listen to the sound of silence.

    All that aside – the picture is magical and the lights enchanting.

    I think the skyline looks fabulous! It’s hard to brave the cold and wind to get moments like this, so I applaud you! Have a great week.

      Hahaha – thank you, Cathy. Honestly – I probably could have stayed a little longer, but my friends were chattering even more 🙂
      Hope you are having a wonderful week, too.

    So sorry to be late in visiting from Song-ography. Isn’t it funny how silent a bustling city can be when gazing upon it from afar?!? One of the most beautiful skylines in the world. Thank you for joining in at Song-ography.

    Lovely image, amazing how the city can be silent if you step right back from it all
