Lights & Shadows

This photo shows a renovated parking complex (it was probably a warehouse before) across the street from Cinema Village on 12th Street between 5th Avenue and University Place. I was standing outside the small movie theater when I saw this interesting light-and-shadow image of the building. Also, the sky has this perfect blue that was just breathtaking.

No question today. Am having writer's block. :-)

Blog writing is hard sometimes. And sometimes it's hard finding a photo that says something you want to say. That's ok. Everyday is a new one and opportunity comes knocking when least expected. FWIW, I like the mystery conveyed by your photo.

Love the dark tones here.
I have a question for you: "what movie did you watch?" Man on wire?

Olivier said...

"Ombre et lumière" le titre d'un vieux film français (1951) du réalisateur henri Calef.

"Shadow and Light" the title of an old movie's french (1951) by director Henri Calef.

Uh, that's a parking building? I think I'd be too scared to park there at night.

So what did you watch?

I too like the eerie quality of this photo. Even I, who have been known to talk the ears off a billy goat, suffer from writer's block from time to time. Somedays I just want to put my picture up and say, " Here's my picture today, hope you like it!" HA

Reminds me of an Alfred Hitchcock movie set.

Oh, a building dripping with a shadow ganache. It's lovely, especially with that contrasting sky.
My head is full of noise, and I usually tap it out on the keyboard in three-quarter time, but sometimes I get writers and photographers block!

Interesting photo-I like the shadows and light contrast. The picture is worth a "thousand" or fewer words. Great post.

Here's your question....Would you feel safe parking here?
My answer....I don't think so.

The sky is a perfect blue. That's such an interesting shot! I'm glad to know that Cinema Village is still there. I like the smaller movie houses and that's a good one. They usually show the arty movies.

Great contrast. I love the way the sky gets so blue in the evening in summer time.

It looks a bit ominous but interesting too. Great light.

I like your challenge, but it won't be as easy as the nuns. Watch my blog...it might just happen!

I haven't been to that theater, but there are some really good restaurants on that block.

I don't think my little car would like to be left all alone here. he would parp his horn until I came back to rescue him.

Impressive, exotic, great perspective and subject--very nice job here.

We have a question for you too. I think someone already asked. Which movie did you watch? :-)

The movie I saw was a Korean drama called, No Regret.
