Greetings from the Mother Ship, the Apple Store at Night

The Mother ship, at night
Photo by myself, at Fifth Avenue and Central Park South.

The ghostly glow from the mother ship can be seen every day of the year.

A steady stream of ipeople were going in and out of the store, Thursday night. This Apple location is open 24/7, 365 days a year.

There is an optical illusion going on, since there is only one real Apple logo suspended in the cube. At night, the glass becomes more reflective than transparent. The logo is multiplied.

When I was in this area a couple weeks ago, there were a few of us trying to take photos of the store. It was mildly amusing because we were all trying to take photos of this thing that you could hardly see.

For something verging on the invisible, the kiosk manages to have a presence.

You hardly see the glass, it is almost like the apples are floating in the air. Great photo.

I love this night shot, Kitty! Especially cool is the way the APPLE symbol glows and stands out off the glass!
Bon weekend

New York City--What a great place to photograph! So much interesting architecture and so many faces. Sorry I didn't do more when I was living on the east coast.
