Bryant Park , NYC
Just after a light rain the ivy and the poster matched perfectly and I waited for the woman to be partially hidden to complete the illusion. The red umbrella and shirt was a nice extra.
Central Park, New York City
What a great escape from the throngs of people just a block away.
I got up early enough find the perfect old European street without tourists just as the morning sun hit the buildings. The hanging laundry added some color.
West Village, New York City
It actually looks livable.
Riverside Park, 91st street, NYC
This was taken an hour after a light snow and just before dusk. The city is on the left, noisy and hectic and the frozen Hudson River is on right. No one has ventured out yet, not even the dog walkers.
Convenience Store, Upper West Side, NYC
Something for everyone. Layers of marketing chaos. I wonder who sits on the bench.
Lower West Side, New York City
I was lucky to get a guy in one of the few remaining phone booths with a poster advertising legroom...I was going for wall and the shapes on the ground.
Rockefeller Center, New York City
A contrast between the joyful holiday season and the frustrating crowds felt by even the most hardened New Yorker.
Union Station, Los Angeles
The station is refurbished but retains the feel of a classic building. The refection of the afternoon light made me think of how much more civilized travel was many years ago.
This is a very small and slightly curved street that looks more like a Hollywood movie set than a Manhattan avenue. A quiet place for a photographer to shoot a model or girlfriend.
This is 47th street in Manhattan. Everyone looks like a deal maker on the move.
