50th and Broadway

view map

In September I was lucky enough to travel to two places I've never been - New York City and Boston. New York is now home to special friends of ours, and seeing the little that I did with them as our guides made the visit all the better. I can't wait to go back. We flew our youngest son out to celebrate his 21st birthday in the city, a weekend I'm sure he won't forget. (And we all made it back in one piece!) Please visit my Boston, gallery as well. I'll be adding more images as I can get to them.

The first of the Boston images:

Canon EOS 5D
1/80s f/7.1 at 70.0mm iso100 full exif

other sizes: small medium original auto

I like the shot because it is busy - like the city. v

Someone is watching.. Excellent framing, the narrow vertical suits the subject beautifully.

I like how you "squished" all the elements together in a vertical format. Really brings home the feeling of a busy, bustling city.

Is it possible
To be a ghost
Among the ever watching sea
Of wandering eyes
And faceless windows.

I see Twizzlers!

Awesome composition and a terrific mix of candid portraits with the more formal architecture. I like the juxtaposition of the upraised hands, too.

Although I have never been there, it sums up NYC to me, and the Sean John poster fits perfectly. I would find NYC indimidating, but at the same time a photographer's paradise :)

Interesting the way they are all lined up and something has caught their eye; no mean feat considering the amount going on in terms of street furniture. I can see repetition in the raised fist and the hand on the crossing sign, and get a great impression of a city dominating those at the foot of the photo

you've included so much in this image..a story to tell from top to bottom..I LOVE NY..

I get a feeling of Bladerunner here. The role of the poster is fundamental in miniturising human beings under the media machine. K

Classic NYC shot! Great job of framing this, capturing both the bustle on the sidewalks and the ad assault above..

This image is really the perfect illustration that the 2x3 format is not the panacea! The vertical panorama is simply the way to go here.

I will come back to view the entire gallery as well as your Boston one! Can't wait to see them all when I can take the time to really enjoy them. Love this shot! Looks like you had a wonderful time! Glad you are home safe and sound!!!!! Fabulous street photography! V

This is an interesting view on the Times Square. Funny enough I was visiting New York just couple of weeks before you did and also first time. And also can;t wait to go back. If you want visit my NYC gallery. You shot reminded me time we spent there. Vote.

I can't find a box to post a comment under the photo itself, so I will do it here -- I love this view of Times Square. You use scale incongruity beautifully by contrasting the huge advertisement to the people who walk below. It is almost as if the man in the poster is blessing the crowd, a veiled comment on how sports have now become a secular religion.
