Photo by myself of the Armory in Park Slope, Brooklyn.
This old armory was recently renovated to become an multi-purpose athletic center, complete with indoor running track. The facade shows a mix of delicate brickwork and flat surfaces.
Everyone is so busy looking straight ahead, in New York, I thought an interesting theme for photographs might be of buildings or spaces, looking straight up.
Most of the time, the storefronts change with the seasons or tenants, while the upper floors remain constant. So many precious details go unseen because people are too busy walking, avoiding pedestrians and traffic, window shopping or just wandering in a daze.
Or, how about images of New York from a superhero's point of view. Visions from the rooftops, in mid-air, facing a subway car hurtling through space?
