I love my stays in New York City! Not a very original or surprising statement, I’m afraid. But the fact is that when I “do the streets” there I feel energized like nowhere else.
There are a couple of images in this gallery not made in NYC but I liked them here, so you´ll have to excuse me for this inaccuracy.
Many millions of interesting scenes take place on the streets of New York every day. And that is so because there are millions of people interacting at a fast pace. And people can always be interesting, in some cases if only because of their apparent lack of attractiveness. Everybody has a life of his or her own. With a history of joy, suffering and in-between. With relatives, friends and maybe enemies too. And with dreams, ambitions, frustrations and a future, however short or long it will be. So most street scenes pose some evidence and myriad questions with no answer. Every second, minute, hour, day, the scenes are shuffled so they never repeat, they never are the same again. Often times making street photos reminds me of fishing. Each day you go out there full of expectations but not knowing what you will find or how you will react to it. If the day ends up with poor results you better review your procedures. You can not blame New York, because it never runs out of interesting scenes.
