With camera's in my backpack and a plane ticket in hand off I went to the East Coast for a family vacation! It was tough trying to grab street photography photos while keeping up with family. The difference between street photography in New York vs Los Angeles is the compact landscape. New York appears to be more dense than LA thus creating people in closer quarters and moments seem to start as fast as they end. I felt people moving faster and more aware of their surroundings. With the endless supply of billboards, signage, and buildings it was just a matter of finding interesting subjects. I used both my canon DSLR and Fuji x100t for these images.
Sometimes moments happen so fast I'm forced to fire from the hip. I saw some people having a conversation and
my own reflection.
Although out of focus I loved the expression he gave me as I walked by.
Everyone was on a big screen so they did'nt notice me taking a photo of them
Something about this photo strikes me as being odd I can't put my finger on it.
By Far my favorite shot of the set. I saw 5 NYPD Vehicles pull up on the sidewalk so something good might happen! I waited for 10 mins but nothing was going on, then all of the sudden this girl walks into my shot to take her sweater off giving me this great look.
Hustle and Bustle
