"Courteous hosts..."

The afternoon yawns with its mouth full of sunlight before it slips into the shadows of evening.

Fire escapes catch the sun’s gleam: staircases for dreamers propelling dreams skyward.

And the trees bow graciously in the lingering glow of sweet sunlight: courteous hosts beckoning wanderers to bask in the shared glow and warmth of the city.

So much warm goodness going on here.
 
Kodak had in there in there early manuals, not to shoot toward the sun. I scoff at that! I am glad that you do to.
 
You make some cool finds in NY. Love the warm brown tones.

Wonderful +Vivienne Gucwa - This photo speaks to me in several ways. Although cities have always dominated the natural world there are small moments of harmony and contrasts between nature and the city if one keeps their eyes open. On this street, nature appears to have gained a small foothold into the sky, and reminds us all to dream of beauty and bigger things, among the countless ordered structures and interdependent complex systems that define our cities.
 
it's nice sunrise over there. ;)
 
+Tom Chamberlain - Really? I don't really know the old rules (or the rules) since I am relatively new to photography (2 years). I wonder if it had more to do with the sunlight destroying lenses/film in the older cameras? I love shooting towards the sun. :)
 
it's like so peace. your welcome. ;)
