I took my father today to get knee replacement surgery at the Hospital for Special Surgery on 70th Street and the East River. This is the place to go for these types of surgeries, as it has the lowest infection rate in the country.
Luckily, the surgery went well and so far everything has gone smoothly.
So in my stupor of waking up on four hours of sleep at 4AM, I decided that it wouldn't hurt to grab my camera. I have been forcing myself to take it everywhere with me and it has turned into a rewarding policy.
It turned out to be a good decision, because the view from the waiting room was absolutely stunning. There were these huge floor to ceiling windows overlooking the East River. The view really helped me to get my mind off the fact that I was in a hospital and my dad was having surgery.
Seats were placed directly in front of each of these windows, and I like above photo because it shows how close your knees get to this expansive view. (And also the theme of the day was knees.) There was definitely no zooming here.
But for me the most powerful image from the day didn't even include the view.
