Candid, Midtown

Midtown, NYC
Photo by myself in Midtown, around 34th Street and Sixth Avenue.

I love taking candid photos of crowds. People are so naturally expressive.


When I took the above photo, I was standing in the midst of a crowded sidewalk on 34th Street, which I usually avoid.

Kajillions of people streamed around me. Beyond, I could see a kajillion more people. It was overwhelming.

New York at its best-stuffed wtih people. Thanks for these daily photos. They bring me back to NYC, one of my very favorite places to be.

Kitty, you probably see more people in a day, than I'll do in my entire life. I appreciate that you share some.

Kitty said...

lol guys, I had a tough day today and it was wonderful to come home to such nice comments. I'm glad you all appreciate these candids as much as I do.

B Squared, lol. Seems like he's laughing with us?

Hi City Girl
Great to meet an ex-NYer. I love your work!

Hi Fredrik
It's funny, NYers 'see' people but I don't think the people register in our (tiny, crowded) brains. Living in the peaceful countryside like Ystad seems much healthier.

Hi Lily
Ha, I wish I had a microphone. It's the woman's eyebrows that are so wonderful.

Thanks Fancy for NYC!

Ha, Ken Mac
I miss your neighborhood and must stop by soon. Greenwich Village is so much calmer than Herald Square.
