Times Sq. “Wide” 1985

*TimesSq-WideAngle-Runner-1985 copyI never liked super wide angle lenses. This was taken with a 20mm 2.8 and I rarely took it with me when I traveled. You can see what was left of the Times Sq. bowling alley, and I wish I had taken a few shots inside when I bowled there. It was like walking back into the 1940’s with the old timers smoking their cigars, and placing bets on the ponies…

“The Little Building that Could” 1986

I really liked that this little building somehow survived the developers, who had attached their sign with a picture of a 34 story tower, proclaiming “1964 Fall Occupancy”. Twenty two years later the little greasy spoon was still serving affordable meals just one block south of Times sq.

AKA “Nudes & Nuns”

I was shooting with a friend of mine when I took this one, and we both were hoping they would get together a little closer. I think I caught her moment of recognition, as she turned around quickly. Maybe she attended Catholic school as a girl?
