On winter nights
we walk through streets
muffled into silence
by freshly fallen snow
that yields to our
eager to record
if only for a brief moment.
And as the buildings
rise up like mountains
it’s the in-between moments
that stir the hearts
of fellow urban somnambulists.
under an umbrella
as the city embraces us,
and we huddle in each other’s
the city a glint in our eyes
like every glistening snowflake
that makes its way
to the sidewalk.
This is a totally candid moment captured on a magical winter night in New York City. This photo was taken in midtown Manhattan with my Sony A99 during a blizzard that dropped nearly a foot of snow on the city. The vantage point is on 5th Avenue looking south towards lower Manhattan.

The Sagrada Família, Antoni Gaudí’s unfinished masterpiece, is one of Barcelona’s most popular tourist attractions. Construction on this church will continue for at least another decade, but it has already become Barcelona’s most important landmark.
The idea for the construction of a new church was launched by a devout organisation whose goal was to bring an end to the de-christianisation of the Barcelonese, which had started with the industrialization and was caused by the increasing level of education of the Catalan population. The organisation purchased a plot of land in the new Eixample district in 1877. The architect Francisco de Paula del Villar designed a neo-Gothic church and led the construction which started in 1882.
One year later, the modernist architect Antoni Gaudí took over as lead architect at the age of 31. From that moment on, Gaudí devoted most of his life to the construction of the church.
Instead of sticking to the original plans, Gaudí changed the design drastically. The neo-Gothic style made way for Gaudí’s trademark modernist style, which was based on forms found in nature. When he died in 1926 only Sagrada Família Towers. Two of the towers one facade (the Nativity Facade), one tower, the apse and the crypt were finished.
