Refinery Rooftop

For the second time in a couple of weeks, I photographed an event at the Refinery Rooftop on 38th Street. I was happy the party started early in the evening, so I had a chance to experience the full spectrum of light. The Empire State Building towers over the venue and the sun setting in the west creates a dramatic golden scene perfect for a summer night cocktail party on a rooftop in midtown. The guests mingled wearing bright blue sunglasses while sipping cocktails topped with rose petals.
