engaged with the setting sun on Flickr.
I’m naturally drawn to high contrast situations when it comes to shooting. I love the setting sun during the summers, it creates all these great shadows in the city but most of all you can capture people coming home from work or just later in the day when they’re a bit more weary from the events of the day. You can tell who’s had a good day and who just wants to get it over with.

It was such a nice day, sunny and right temperature.
Eastside Thoughts on Flickr.
One of my favorite intersections is 42nd st and 6th ave, right at the north end of Bryant Park. There’s an outdoor Wichcraft cafe, you can get a cup of java sit down and watch the city move.

The solitary confinement of a bag on Flickr.
My sister is in town this week and staying with me. I love my sister but she gets on my nerves and every moment of bliss between us is something to be regarded with care which in turn motivates me to be out of the house and out of site earlier in the morning. So I decided to venture down to midtown Manhattan, walk about as they say. This was captured at Bryant Park or at most by Bryant Park. Now I’ve discussed in the past how I try not to be scene when shooting at the risk of compromising the purity of the expression I’m trying to capture…well I’ve decided I want to be more in front of my subject. So the goal now is to be bolder and riskier, I want to take the shot before they see me and if they see me afterwards, it’s fine.
Morning Coffee on Flickr.
Patterns, I’m addicted to them and not only in structure but the human behavior. I notice in the city, we either have a cup of coffee in our hands or a cellphone. That’s cool with me, I just need you to hold it long enough for me to get my shot.
On another note, I’ve now lived here for over 17 years and can automatically spot tourists, like these two young folks, caught them by Port Authority early morning with the sun shinning bright.
Of to work with the rat on Flickr.
Haven’t quite seen it at other cities yet, but in New York, when the Union protests, they do so if a giant rat. This provided the back drop for this particular shoot. I waited as long as I could hoping to catch a model or model like person walking past it to create some kind of juxtaposition, alas none came and I was running late to meet my friend. However since we have become hipster central, I was able to capture this strap dress fella walking through.

This might be my new favorite spot to shoot. Sorry, can’t give it away, can only say it’s some where in the east village and when the sun starts to go down, it creates some really nice shadows to work with and you also capture all the people coming back from work.
within the reach of a sublime moment on Flickr.
Its not often windy in New York, wish it was, could be a great setting for a photo project.
Contemplative Moments on Flickr.
Shadow hunting I came across this in the East Village, New York. Not sure if she was alone, its a pizza joint, so good chance some one was taking the order while she waited. Regardless, it’s nice to be left alone to your thoughts some days…
