The Right Time

Flat Iron Building

It's been great exploring NYC with my urban guerilla guide and friend, Harry Sandler.  There's nothing like being with a kindred spirit.  We took our time taking photos around Madison Avenue where hundreds of tourists from all over the world gather to have their images taken around the famous landmarks surrounding the square in front of the Flat Iron Building.

It wasn't my first time in the square or in front of this building.  Nor was it my first time to photograph this landmark made famous by years of photography.  It was however the first time that I had the technology and knowledge to add texture to the sides of the building.  The image came alive and three dimensional by a simple handheld device, the iPhone.

Could it really be that some problems truly are solved by time?  There's no way that I could have rendered the same image several years ago or even several months ago.  Perhaps, just perhaps, time does solve all problems.  Only time will tell.

  1. Great shot Al.

    Time does not solve any problem. At least not as I see it. The solutions are always there. It just takes time for that solution to present itself. Even then, you also have to open your mind to knowing that it is there.
