Special K captures an image that is both classic yet forever evolving. The Empire State Building (1931) and The American Copper Building (2017) intimately paired, throwing a beautiful glow across the East River.

This image was captured with a Vivitar 135mm lens circa 1970-1980. I chose this lens for an intimate view of the subject, the glorious glows and warmth that vintage lenses produce when paired with modern cameras.
