The Moon on Fifth Avenue
When I need to get to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, or something in the neighborhood, I love to walk. I take a subway from Penn Station up to 5th Avenue and 59th street, and then I walk the twenty or so blocks up 5th avenue. Not only is it great exercise, but it gives me so many opportunities for photographs, both looking into Central Park, and looking at the architecture on Fifth Avenue. That's what I was doing when I noticed a gibbous moon following me up Fifth avenue. I would stop and photograph when there was interesting architecture in line with the moon. This is the best photograph, and it is an interesting building. It is called The Harry F. Sinclair House, a mansion at 79th Street at Fifth Avenue, that houses the Ukrainian Institute of America, which promotes art and literature by hosting exhibitions open to the public. It is a striking building and perfect for my moon photograph.
