You can't drive THIS Chrysler

As most of you would know, my continual quest is to find fresh, unusual angles of familiar landmarks. Along with Mrs Authorblog and the Authorbloglets, we were walking towards Grand Central Station in New York City in June this year - and of course, I was lagging because I was taking quick shots of the skyline while we walked.

Then we stopped for the lights at the corner of Fifth Avenue and 42nd Street and, as I always do, I did a quick scan on all four points of the compass, then I looked directly up. There, above me, was the shot I wanted. I shot the Chrysler Building's distinctive Art Deco shape through the street lights above me.

This is simply a low-resolution image, but if you want to see the original in full resolution on my Red Bubble site, just click here and I hope you enjoy what you see.

I love this fresh view of that oft photographed iconic building.

Hats off to you Sir Knight.

My wife and I were able to visit NYC for the first time this past August, and I was having a similar problem lagging behind to take photos.

I love the picture…the Chrysler Building is one of my favorites!

Living as close as I do to NYC, I always love seeing photos of the city. This is a great shot! Love the angle.
