    Here comes the sun....


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     AnitaCassini tried to see Manhattanhenge – a phenomenon where the sun aligns perfectly with Manhattan's street grid -- on Tuesday, but clouds foiled the photo shoot. But last night, she and hundreds of other New York photographers were more successful. 'We had beautiful light behind the clouds, and the orange glow reflected onto the buildings ... but that was it,' she wrote. 'The sun was covered by the clouds but the experience of being with all these people was wonderful.'
    - zdan, CNN iReport producer

    but in Manhattan on Tuesday May 28, 2011 ... and  Wednesday May 29, 2012, our song was covered by clouds... Tuesday, frustration set in hundreds of New Yorkers that ran out with camera phones, dslrs, tripods and huge video cams to take a picture of the sun, smack in the middle of the Manhattan grid (no luck.) On Wednesday... we had beautiful light behind the clouds, and the orange glow reflected onto the buildings... but that was it !!!!!!


    July 11, our lenses are waiting!
