Just Another Street Shot

I've been very involved planning a photography book. Shooting for the collection of photos has been taking all my street time in New York so there's little opportunity to photograph other subjects. Still in all, I'm always looking around me even though my thoughts are wrapped up in where I'm going or where I've been. While digging through my catalog of material for the book, I happened upon this shot taken on Fifth Avenue this past March. After yesterday's and today's 90ºF temps it's hard to imagine someone walking around in a heavy fur coat. The hint of back light is what caught my eye.

Not Waving Hello ....

At the beginning of this past March I took a walk on the High Line. The air was brisk, but it was the first sunny day that had a taste of springtime in the air. That seems so long ago, now that we're heading into 85+ºF temps later this week. I was hoping to get a shot of the attractive woman, but just as she turned her head her boyfriend raised his hand to ask me not to take the shot. I'm always happy to comply .....

I'm hoping to get to Coney Island for Memorial Day afternoon. Lots of great Americana there.
