The statue of Atlas at Rockefeller Center in Manhattan always surprises and mesmerizes me. It is perfect in its lines, power, balance and form. To look at negative space as well as the mighty bronze sculpture, is to see a wondrous encapsulation of the City's complexity and style. Look through the delicate and massive globe towards the fragile, elegant and hopeful spires of St. Patrick's Cathedral to realize a stunning composition.
This image is not new for me or many others. However, each time I see it its aesthetic is breathtaking.
