I now know why movies come with a director’s cut. I was going through some of my older and unpublished New York City photos and found a few from Manhattan and Brooklyn that I just couldn’t send to the backup drive before sharing. I hope you enjoy.
There were quite a few frozen fingers today as photographers went out to photograph their favorite New York spots, now blanketed with snow. I wish I could have stayed out in it all day – checking out the Brooklyn Bridge, Chinatown, Central Park, and all the hot spots – but we didn’t have a “snow day” at work. So here’s my favorite shot from my morning and evening commutes.

I didn’t start thinking about it until after I checked this shot for exposure, but every time you are looking at someone in the streets of New York, someone else is looking at you. What do they see. What do they think at first glance? What are they listening to in those enormous headphones? Life is a mystery.
My biking brethren! I had to keep going downtown, but if you hang out around Astor Place in the late afternoon, you can get some fun-lit shots because of the reflection off of that big blue glass building. As you can tell, I didn’t check what it was, but it helps cast an interesting light.
