The Lumen Festival was held last weekend at the Atlantic Salt Works on Staten island just walking distance from my home.
We were meeting friends to see the show about 9 PM. The sun hadn’t set yet.
Salt mounds had been built as an environment where artists could perform or project their work. The factory itself provided architectural spaces for performance and video projects.
Smoke from grilled meats filled the air at an area with tables for eating and conversation with Manhattan in the background.

People from all boroughs and a few other states were in the crowd. It was one of the best attended events I have seen on Staten Island.
The salt works machinery was lit up to as a part of the festival.

More Machinery, I think this may be part of a painting in my future.

There was a surprise fireworks show in the harbor. The fireworks seemed to be coming from the Jersey side of the river.

This is a hand held night shot. It’s amazing what the digital cameras can do now with a little zoom and a steady hand.
