Urban Beauty

Sometimes, living in New York City, it's easy to get overwhelmed by the sheer urban-ness of it all. 

It's hot, it's smoggy, it smells, there's traffic, it's loud...

And then little things happen to remind you how beautiful this city can actually be. 

A double rainbow, as seen from my 17th floor balcony, after a thundery afternoon

A spectacular sunset over the reservoir in Central Park, seen on an evening run.
Nature manages to best this concrete jungle every once in a while...
