Spies Hide Out in Every Corner

It started raining while we were driving back to the city. It was quiet except for that sound that tires make when they rush across the wet pavement. I started to think about the city, all the people, how much I love it, and suddenly the quiet was like an alarm in my ears.

I thought about this enormous city and it was reduced to just a few lights, a wet windshield and a steady hum on the road on the way in. Sometimes I look out the window in my living room and I wonder about all the specs of light coming from the buildings. We're all on top of each other - thousands of people on one block and we're all just small lights. We're not that different from each other.

I love this. I was shooting the city from my friend's rooftop last night and when I was zooming in and out of focus on the cars below, I thought something similar. I also love that song. you are one awesome lady! xo

These are such beautiful photos. I love the way you described it all. I've often wondered what it would be like to live in a city such as NYC. I can only imagine.
