Photo by myself at 35th Street and Sixth Avenue, in Midtown.
A fellow pushed a cart for Karen Miller, a company that designs formal dresses. I have a feeling he saw me and was trying to avoid being in the photo.
In Midtown and around Seventh Avenue, you still often see carts loaded with clothing and bolts of fabric.
I used to post black and white photos more often, but now I feel more comfortable with color. Black and white can be more striking, but you lose some nice contrasts - a bright white LED light next to a fluorescent storefront, for example.
These days I post in black and white when the color doesn't look so good - the camera might be focused to be in one area, and there is a distracting swatch of red in the background. I've learned from experience that black and white photos are best when taken on overcast days, so the sky looks white in the image.
In today's photo, I just thought the black and white was a nice change of pace.
