DUMBO Streets

As I mentioned in a previous post, The New York Photo Festival was running in the DUMBO neighborhood of Brooklyn. The schedule has been extended to the end of the month of May. You can view the announcement here

As I was walking towards the Brooklyn Bridge, I saw this couple rushing purposefully in my direction and loved the way they were moving in sync with each other. I see this often - people who walk together tend to be in step with each other. They were both leaning in rhythm as they walked. They were so purposeful as they moved, almost as if they had just decided that they needed to get home for some undefined business. I tried to come up with something witty or pithy to say about the stop sign with the arrow perfectly placed between their shoulders but couldn't. Maybe I should have a contest to see if anyone comes up with a winner caption.


  1. Good street shot, Gene. It works very well with the symmetric couple walk. Like the way the outer legs are in the same position. The way they lean a bit to the right (of the photo) gives a feeling of movement.

  2. Great picture and great tone. Are insuperable. Always interesting and instructive your stories. Hi Gene

  3. I really enjoy reading your articles Gene and always learn something new.Love this happy faces here!I was wondering where they hurry...........?
