Day 44: Something Beautiful—Big Light, Big Apple

Something Beautiful is a 2013 self-imposed initiative to find a visual feast for each day of the year.

After Storm Nemo came barreling through Manhattan last weekend, I came prepared for arctic conditions. Long, lined coat, leather gloves, and shawl/scarf. Instead, the balmy 44 degrees and day’s rain front had dismissed most of the weekend white. The evening was swathed in a gentle fog and polka dotted with fuzzy window and street lights.

Bryant part took a page from Lautrec’s inky blue and dull chartreuse palette. The week promises art, music, light and much more—all big.
