Street Studio NYC

Oblivious to his surrounding

He pulled a down stroke, black marker

A girl with red dress, walked by

bumping her Burberries shopping bag

He made a circle, black marker

A man rushed with his lunch, dropping paper napkins

He finished with long strokes of horizontal... blue marker

A lady, sweet smelling, asked for a direction to Balthazar.

    Makasih Shinta!

    Sebastian, Thanks for your comment. I have the same fascination with you.

    Woolloomooloo, glad that you get that :) It was amazing to watch him work, to admire his concentration... but I think it was the street, buzzing with people, some bumped to his table actually energized him.

    Thanks Scuzzi, isa, and Jenn
    May is a prime time to do street photo in NY, before it gets too hot and too crowded with visitors. I am so looking forward to walk and snapshooting soon.
