I’ve never been much of a morning person, but having a baby sure changed that. It also meant it was time for a 2 bedroom apartment and our days in Tribeca were over. So back in August we found ourselves in a nice new place in Long Island City, with a great view of Manhattan. Since I’m on the early shift with the baby, I’m suddenly witness to the sunrise regularly for the first time in my life too. Every day it’s a different light show as the sun hits the city across the East River. As a photographer it would just be negligent not to shoot what’s happening out there. So here are a few of the many pictures, all taken from the same spot on my balcony, that have become the project – NYC from LIC.
