For my second theme week, I have decided on recent pictures of New York City. NYC is a photographer’s dream. There is so much going on that it doesn’t take much effort to find something interesting to shoot. Different buildings, different people, it’s always in motion. Because of the motion and the change it seems to never get old. I was very happy with some of the photos I took my last two visits to the city and wanted to share them.
This photo has many layers. The perspective of the broad avenue getting smaller leads the eye to the new One World Trade Center. In the foreground the people crossing the street are each quite interesting going about their day. On each of the sides the signs catch the eye. It can be a challenge to present so much – this photo is very busy. The picture is busy, just the like the city. But I think the composition allows the eye to be drawn to the different aspects of it with feeling too overwhelmed.
