THE STREETS OF
August 7, 2005.
I have been going to Times Square since I was a child. One of my first memories
is going to the movies with my grandmother to see Jerry Lewis in "Cinderfella" at the Victoria Theater in the early 1960s. But on
my most recent visit this past summer I saw this New York area differently.
Visually it's an amazing place. From about Broadway and 49th Street to 42nd Street there
is constant energy on the streets. People speeding down sidewalks, neon lights flashing,
tourists taking photographs, street vendors selling their goods, taxis speeding by. Non stop action.
I wanted to capture the excitement of the area with
my camera. I was amazed how I was able to shoot photos directly at people and they would not even
look at me and notice what I was doing. This is very evident in the first photo in this group.
