I thought it would be fun, here at the end of 2013 to post a few of these photos along with a contact sheet.
One thing I enjoyed doing was to walk around the city with the camera just hanging around my neck, finger on the shutter and just randomly point and click, trying to make myself as inconspicuous as possible while trying to capture random people in totally unguarded moments.
I only got caught one time by some crazy ass guy who grabbed my arm and told me I wasn't allowed to take his picture. Ah, NYC in the early 90's. Still, it was better than being caught sketching someone on the subway, who then said they wanted to see your sketch before they got off at their stop. No pressure there!
Anyway here's some of my NYC b&w photos.
The contact sheet! Did I manage to get anything interesting???
Oh, yeah! This guy's a winner!!!
Central Park Zoo
90's power brokers beneath the statue of Atlas at 30 Rock
Homeless camp beneath Manhattan Bridge
A very organic view of midtown from the park.
