So, as of the time change last week, it is once again that time of year in New York, when the days grow shorter and shorter, until much of the day is spent in darkness... I must say it really freaked me out when I first moved here - I crave sunlight, and it took a lot of getting used to. Soon, it will be dark by 4:30 in the afternoon, and stay that way until sometime in March when the daylight slowly returns. Sounds like a long time, doesn't it? It is.
But there is something beautiful about New York in the dark - you get this sense that much of the city was crafted for this time of year, when darkness looms and the cold stings. But the lights of the city are bright and warm.
All of my night shots come from this time of year, when I stroll here and there in the dark, seeing what I can catch with the available light...
I'm also sure this time of year is why I love to craft. There's nothing nicer than sitting by a warm lamp with a cup of tea and imagining weird, fun, and ridiculous crafts. Or, reading a book, and cozying up to a movie.
How about you guys? What's fall/winter like where you are? What do you like most about it? What do you do to get through it? :)
