NYC skyline

I’m not going to comment on events today, but I do want to share this beautiful photograph by my Fotolog chum BeckyBecky. How many times have we all seen this skyline in a movie? As a film fan I’ve lost count; I’ve never been there yet know it through the flickering celluloid images. Now even watching older Woody Allen movies with Mel (a favourite pastime) the skyline of New York takes on a different resonance. I re-watch Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man movie and think on how they digitally erased the twin towers from the film; significane and symbols can be retrospectively altered. It is odd, I find myself nostalgiac for a now-gone skyline which I never actually saw with my own eyes. In a few years it will be different again.
