Saturday Snapshot: August 27


Saturday Snapshot is a meme hosted by Alyce at At Home with Books. All you have to do is "post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken and then leave a direct link to your post in the Mr. Linky on [her] blog. Photos can be old or new, and be of anything as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give is up to you." All she asks is that you don't just post random photos that you find online. (Click picture for close-up.)



This is a shot of New York City from the air at night. It was taken as we left NYC in 2009. I'm posting it today as I think of those in New York--and all along the East Coast--while Hurricane Irene rages. Praying that everyone will be safe!

Wow, look at all the lights! I spoke with a friend of mine in Virginia Beach and they weathered the storm well, so I'm hoping New York will too.

I love flying in or out of a city at night. Great pic!

What a cool picture. I love it.
Think of how many people are right there within the span of those lights! Crazy!

That is a really neat photo from the airplane. I've never been able to get one that clear.

I love this picture. So far away, yet it captures the life of New York City. Hope everyone is safe there.

Great picture! I took my first out of an airplane photo this summer. Why don't I do that more often?

Mesmerizing to look at all those lights.

My goodness, all those rows of lights.

I wonder what it looks like at night in the current situation.

That is a great pic! I am hoping NYC fares well. I lived on LI till I was 21, so this is tense watching from afar.

Fabulous and magical! My thoughts are with the East Coast today and all weekend, too. Hope everything comes out okay.

Thanks for visiting my blog.

That's a good picture under those circumstances. From the new it looks like NYC didn't do to badly during the storm, all things considered.
