People on a Mission

I sometimes visit one of the museums in New York's Museum Mile on upper Fifth Avenue, and afterwards take a slow walk down Madison Avenue and back to Penn Station. Madison Avenue is the home of very expensive boutiques and jewelry shops. So there's always the chance to get some wonderful shots of the 'beautiful people' out and about.

The woman in this shot was looking longingly at some jewelry, and her husband's expression seemed to say 'Oh God, not another pair of diamond earrings!'




Further on as I walked through midtown I saw this gentleman walking with intense purpose in his stride and carrying a hand saw. I hope he wasn't a serial killer on his way to complete a job!
