One of the things I lament about having a relatively typical office job (especially during these fall-winter days when the sun goes down right after 4 pm) is the lack of opportunity to snap photos in glorious daylight. I know, #firstworldproblem, but entertain me.
When I think of on-point Instagram accounts, I think of endless grids of dreamy things shot in natural light, blending together to form one crisp, clean aesthetic.
It’s hard to get that when you can’t go off to take photos during work…and when posting a bunch of #latergrams from one sunny weekend feels too fake and constraining.
As it turns out, day does turn into night IRL, and we just have to deal.
But the good news is…New York City ain’t half bad after dark. In fact, the #mood is often quite sublime. Here are my favorite night-time shots from the past year or so, seen first on Instagram.
