These are amazing. Your images are always inspiring. It is clear that you are a designer. Do you ever sell rights to the photos for commercial purposes?

These pictures are wonderful. The Chrysler building should sell them as postcards. I really love the first two... KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!

i think these are badly lit and too quickly shot actually... but thx. they're fun for snapshots.

christa: i've licensed photos as stock, and have been a photographer for work projects. i haven't pursued more than that.

Great pictures. I'm always trying to wait for an empty elevator when I try to go the Chrysler Building, but guards look at me funny.

There are great, and I particularly like the first and second; the former for the quality of light and its compostion, and the latter for its 'richness' and clarity.

Is it possible to get pictures of the interior on the 70-77 floors? The pictures are quite unique and spectacluar. I really admire this building a lot.

Is it possible to cry over this building? These images capture the interiors so well. I am interested in seeing more.
