I LOVE CITY… ANY CITY

I create my very own visions of the city... Any city..
For I am the urban junkie... I don't use narcotics... I get high walking the streets of the city... Any city..

Walk with me and you'll see...
There is no skies in my city ...

No i znowoz mnie zadziwiasz.
Kompozycja-nielatwa a poprawna, dzieki czterem osobom skierowanym w Twoja strone...
Twarze - zyja. Ale trzeba wejsc w ten tlum, aby to zobaczyc. Facet z prawej...smiejaca sie babeczka...i podobny do czolowego dziennikarza francuskiego facet niedaleko niej. Na Ciebie sie nie patrza - ale zyja.

Co do technicznej strony, to ja juz wole zdjec nie oceniac. Ale widze szumy, no i czy mi to tutaj przeszkadza ? Absolutnie nie. U ciebie moga byc szumy i inne "niekatolickie" rzeczy, a i tak jest dobrze. Swiatlo...piekne. Tlum ciekawy i w Twoim stylu, chociaz nie widze tutaj zadnego samochodu ;))...chociaz, jak dobrze sie przypatrzec, to jest ;)).

A wiesz, jakie miejsce mi to przypomina ?
Warszawe...kolo Domow Centrum...: D.

Pozdrawiam. Grazyna.

Maybe if you had offered me twenty minutes in the private fantasy room... I don't eat Big Macs.
It looks like you took this somewhere near Times Square, and it's getting harder to find these private fantasy rooms these days since they started cleaning up the place.
I like how the tele lens has compressed the scene here, and the back-lighting has picked out the various details beautifully.
It's a very busy image, but there's a lot to enjoy here.
Good stuff George.

Cheers,
Ben

Hey, George,
I love the aliveness of this shot. The bustle, the smiles, signs, faces... Especially the guy in the uniform hat. Don't know if he's a cop or a bus driver. Forget the BigMac and make it a beer and you're on..:)) Have a great evening!!

Witaj George
To mi sie podoba. Zwykle ruchliwe miejsce, ja bym nawet aparatu nie wyciagal, nie widzac sensu robienia zdjecia. A Tobie wyszlo ciekawie i swietnie oswietlone z doskonala glebia. To sie nazywa talencik :).
Pozdrawiam

Witaj Jurku!
Swietny, nieco odrealniony klimat ulicy, troche wyglada jak kadr z filmu, albo z wiadomosci!
Bardzo sie podoba!

Ah, he's back! ;) Guess this is what they call street photography. I can see a street and a photograph, so... Love the way you used horizontals all across the vertical frame and the way you isolated two main subjects: the smiling man with the glasses (and the aura of light over his head) and the business man with the suit and tie walking alone (Doctor Grabarczyk I presume). It well may be your routine, but it looks gorgeous on film. I was missing this rush views... Stay safe, l.

Mmmm. No tak. Postanowiłeś pokazać, jak należy TO robić :)) - street shoting... I świetnie :)) Fajne te prześwietlone uszy i zajaczek na twarzy policjanta. Po prostu fajne :)) Wszyscy z aureolkami... Pachną (ole ? od olidus) ? e tam, pachną - falują. Tłum płynie jak rzeka. Czym się rσżni od rzeczki widzianej pod światło ? Że tam listki wierzbowe, a tutaj napisy i szyldy ?
To Twoja natura, Twσj krajobraz... I tylko słońce naprawdę to samo...
Wykończona po ciężkim dniu przeczytam jutro, co tu napisała i albo zmienię zdanie, albo wręcz przeciwnie. Teraz spać - jesli o mnie chodzi. Dobranoc T.

Before anything else it said New York.....it spoke of a thousand films - always a fantasy of what a central New York sleaze street is - the ubiquitous cop, there has to be a laughing man in glasses and there has to be more information than the average man can handle in a lifetime....wonderful light, the cop is the icing on the cake though - that look says it all - man you nearly made his day!!

George! :))))))))
Being an urban junkie myself, I was not disoriented. "Yes, I know crowds!" And then, as usual, I started to look more carefully. And slowly, but surely, I thought "There is more than meets the eye (well... almost!) in this photo".
First, the messages up there. "Private fantasy rooms" and "adult entertainment" and "We show only the best adult movies". My goodness! That, with that "One way" sign and the guy with "Supreme Court" on his back! Lols!!!
But, the icing on the cake is HIM! Yes! HIM! With his right eye looking at you. With his cap! Is he real? :))))
How on earth, do you arrive to have such an amalgam of fitting elements???
Small interesting detail: we don't see the sky, there is that ceiling above their heads. But their heads are bathing in the light of the sun.
Oh well, why not a Big Mac. Just this once won't hurt! :)))

Somehow I didn't need to confirm that it was a late 80s or early 90s NYC...it's typical. That's where it succeeds.

Hi George,
Yes, I can see that you like cities and are able to show them in a personal way. It has lot's of interesting details and is quite enjoyable to look at with all the different signs and faces. It's also nice not having to be there myself, in the middle of heat and rush.
