Helmsley Building Night Colors

The Helmsley Building is currently my favorite building to photograph. For the pass two years or so, it has been fully lit in beautiful colors in the evening.

I’m not really fond of this color, it’s really pale to the naked eye. It stands out here with extra contrasting.

Looks like this was transitioning between violet and blue

From Wiki: The Helmsley Building is a 35-story building located at 230 Park Avenue between East 45th and East 46th Streets in Midtown Manhattan, New York City, which was built in 1929 as the New York Central Building, and was designed by Warren & Wetmore, the architects of Grand Central Terminal, in the Beaux-Arts style. Before the erection of the Pan Am Building – now the MetLife Building – this building stood out over the city’s second most prestigious avenue as the tallest structure in the great “Terminal City” complex around Grand Central.

travel journal: a day in milano

Monday, August 10, 2015

I began and ended my vacation in Milan, Italy. Sight-seeing was not an interest for this trip, but I couldn’t bring myself to travel so far and not visit a note-worthy site and take some photos. I opted for the Duomo di Milano and the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II across the plaza from the cathedral.

All of the below photos are stitched using Microsoft Image Composite Editor. Editing done in Lightroom.
