Workshop: Manhattanhenge - Sunset on 23rd Street

The beauty of the setting sun is something many of us in New York City do not see regularly. We are blocked by some of the tallest buildings in the world, and we are wrapped up in our busy lives. Take a moment to join us at the Lomography Gallery Store Gramercy in NYC to breathe, and watch as the sun sets down 23rd street. This special sunset only happens twice a year, and is breathtakingly beautiful as the sun cascades and reflects off of the buildings on our street.

What: Manhattanhenge – Sunset on 23rd Street
Technique: Sunset Photography

Enjoy an evening outside the everyday hustle and bustle of New York City as we look east down 23rd street and watch as the sun sets perfectly aligned with the grid of the city streets. This special day only happens twice a year, so come grab a camera and join us as we capture the quite beauty of the moment and savor the peacefulness of the setting sun. This workshop is FREE.

    So here’s what we’ve been working on: an all new lomography.com

    For the last year we've been working on the next version of Lomography. We based our work on the feedback you’ve given us over the years and we wanted to share it as early as possible with you and can’t wait to hear what you think. Just one warning first: it is still in development and things can break. All the photos, comments, likes, homes and everything else were transferred as of October 16th, 2014. So anything you do on next.lomography.com won't be reflected on www.lomography.com and vice versa. Once we are done with testing, everything you did here will be deleted again. So this is a big playground for you to explore.
