Out to Great Neck to visit dad, and on the way back did some shooting in Penn Station and then on 34th street where I took this shot.
Spending the next day finishing up two calendars. One is just called New York (something) which is mostly touristy pictures; and the other one is a day to night to morning with actual people in it called New York Daily (for now). That’s the one with the shots that I think are the most difficult in it. The first one is “beauty shots.” I’m spending so much time working on the Zazzle products – and it is always refreshing to get out and do my usual street type shooting. Whether they’re wearing wigs, or just have the exact same hair – I don’t know – but it was one of those shots where I walked past them, then turned around and walk past again thinking about the shot, and then returned a third time with the framing in my head.
I didn’t have any trouble shooting in Penn Station – maybe because I was so touristy looking today and because I asked a cop if it was okay to shoot before I did, and he was behind me the whole time watching. Fine with me. I don’t care. I figured that way if anyone bothered me I could turn to the cop and say he gave me permission. Penn Station is one of those spots where I’ve been warned not to do any shooting at least three times.
