Gandhi at Union Square

Gandhi at Union Square

Ā Ā Ā Ā  I took this photo of gandhi in the early afternoon at Union Square park. His statue pose is set up as if he was in mid-walk in the middle of a small portion of grass and flowers. What attracts me to the image is how diverse the setting is in terms of what time it seems to represent from the mix of old historical buildings and new modern buildingsĀ because itĀ reminds us what we were able to do with architechture sinceĀ NewĀ York began growing as a city and how architecture has changedĀ and become more modern with sleek glass and less borderingĀ of the windows. TheĀ building to the right of the statue isĀ whereĀ I work and every morning whenĀ I go to work,Ā Gandhi’s statueĀ serves as a reminder that Gandhi wanted to implement peace and serenity to the world and that he only made the world a better place. Integrating modern and old fashioned culture into our city helps us keep in mind how far we have come into developing a city and how far we can go.

City Tech in the making

City Tech in the making

Ā Ā Ā  I took this photo asĀ I was walking to school and heard noise coming from the construction going on across the street and i wanted to go check out what was under construction. It seemsĀ  very obsolete and empty since what was there before was buldozed down and nothing was being built yet. Although its not the most beautiful landscape, it isĀ a development that gives people anticipation to what will rise from it. The contrast from the billboard and the sky brings out the vastness of the sky and the open space which sometimes isĀ difficult to capture at any time in New York. What impulsed me most to take this picture was its eventual value. Many people like to picture what New York was like before a certain time and this photo will serve as an archive that people will be able to look back on when theyre sitting inside what is in the process of being constructed.
