peace in bustling new york

Yes, I've shown you this photo before. But, how can I not include the magnificent NY skyline in this post about New York?

The subtle movement in these photos from From Me To You give a certain calmness to the bustling activity that is typical of New York City. I feel like I'm watching New York in a silent movie. With movement limited to just one element - the passing taxi, the train, the man reading the paper amid a motionless backdrop, New York is graced with a serene quietness that is so uncharacteristic, yet quite fascinating.

Truly, Jamie of From Me To You is an exceptional artist, not only because of her fabulous photography, but also because she has turned animated gif into wondrous art that evokes profound new meaning versus a still photograph or even a full-fledged video. Incredibly remarkable! 

My favorite is the train which Jamie has aptly dubbed, "The Neverending Commute". What about you? What's your favorite?


  1. Question is how she took that picture without a commuter in sight.

    1. You're right! I wonder how she did that!
