Black and White Photo of Empire State Building, New York, by James Maher Photography

I tried to focus on the textures of the old midtown buildings in the foreground as much as I did on the Empire State Building itself, to help give this photo a feeling of the past.

While the building is still awe-inspiring today, this feeling must have been so much stronger when it was completed in the early 30's.
