Art Deco skies

When the Observation Deck at the very top of the Rockefeller Center opened in 1933

I imagine it looked something like this…

Moody, Art Deco inspired and with glorious views.

I’ve manipulated this photo that I took in February of this year —

But left in the modern camera on the left as a way of connecting

The past of my imagination

With the reality of the present.

On top of the world

I arrived back from New York this morning.
(So please excuse me for not getting around to visit you yet…)

One of the highlights of my visit – apart from all the wonderful people I met –

Was a trip up to the Top of the Rock (Rockefeller Centre)

Where blue sky seems to bow down and kiss you.

As we reached the observation deck on the 67th floor,

The sun created the perfect canopy for the Empire State Building.

Going up two more levels

Gave breathtaking views of New York floating in a haze of sunbeams.
