“Hope on the Horizon”

This shot was taken at sunset overlooking the East River toward two of New York’s great bridges, the Manhattan and the Brooklyn and beyond. I am happy to have learned from the education of Aesthetic Realism founded by Eli Siegel, that as two people marry, as they look into each other’s eyes and take their vows, that for a marriage to go well, they need to use each other to see meaning in the world and in other people. I believe this photo represents this most important hope.

  1. Dear Harvey,

    “Hope on the Horizon” is some photograph! The repetitions of upright shapes, the bridges joining and separating Brooklyn and Manhattan, the water taxi sailing diagonally outward from the assembled wedding guests (toward the brightness of “hope on the horizon”), and the subdued colors suggesting sepia prints of the past–all this gives the picture a timeless quality of past and present, animate and inanimate, horizontal and vertical, logic and emotion. I love it!
