I’ve always said that Times Square is one of my favorite places in New York City. Not necessarily to hang out in, but at least walk through on a few occasions whenever I am there. I know that most people who live in the city can be pretty annoyed by it, since it is, for the most part, tourists stopping every two feet to take pictures. But it is something that you can find in very few cities, especially Pittsburgh. A collection of lights, sounds, theaters, restaurants, all kinds of other stores and thousands and thousands of people, all crammed into one place. The energy there just radiates from the streets and the lights, like the city really is alive.
This is a shot that I’ve taken my last couple of trips into the city, and one reason why I like this view so much is that the signs are always changing. I believe this is my fourth pickture from this exact spot and they all look entirely different. Aside from all of the cabs and people screeching by, my favorite part of this shot is the man right in the middle taking a picture. The funny thing is, I didn’t have to mask him in at all. He literally stood there, perfectly still, taking whatever shot he is taking, during all seven of my bracketed shots. It was like he was completely oblivious to the world around him! To add to the shot, it had just rained, so the streets were reflecting even more of the color.
Thanks for swinging by today folks, see you all tomorrow.
