Back alley exposed

Back alley exposed
There used to be a giant parking lot in the foreground here and it made one side of a dank narrow alley. The alley was so creepy cool that they shot some of Spider Man 3 in it. Making it cooler is the fact that there's a slightly shady pizzeria next to a strip bar making up the row of establishments whose backs face this alley. Anyway, weird to see the cross section like that.

I wish this had a face in it somewhere but I still like that the people have such separate things going on.

This isn't much more than a straight up tourist picture, but it feels like there's a little extra vertigiousness to it. Not sure why, maybe the street light?

Blue and yellow

This was unexpected and hopefully I can do it again now that I know how it works. Twilight sky light is blue. Incandescent scaffolding light is yellow, plus yellow headlights on yellow speeding cabs.

There was a week this summer when it seemed like every other person I passed on the street was crying into a phone. Break-up season I guess.

These are of the tunnel being built to extend the Long Island Railroad to Grand Central. I probably could have narrowed this set down a little further but it was a pretty incredible tour so every picture still has a lot of impact for me.

Low tide reflections

There was a rain storm coming and the dark cloud blocked a lot of the light in a very tramatic way but only in half the sky.

The way I've been seeing things lately, this last one may be the best of the bunch compositionally, sloppy as I was in taking it.

What I see here is the tethered balloon and the guy with the wires from his ears looking a lot like a tethered balloon himself. I tried to isolate that and include the child's face with the vertical crop but I don't like how it balances. The big shot feels too big but I wasn't able to find the happy medium.
