When in New York City in summer 2014 I took a photo looking out from the eastern edge of Manhattan across to Queens. That part of Queens is Long Island City, and its well spaced skyscrapers seem reminiscent of a kind of giant Stonehenge. Its’ all artificial but the grass in the foreground and the sky above are not. For me there is a strangely mysterious feel to the combination of those tall, modern, straight-edged buildings with some suggestion of the safety and comforts of the built environment, and the patterning of clouds in the sky which could suggest that something (not sure what) is to come. That’s just me. You might have a different response to it.
