There was just something about this guy.
In recent years I've been looking for quiet scenes more than the bustling ones. When one is on Fifth Ave however, I went with the city.
It's been quiet here for the last month, I've been on a trip to the USA, visiting New York City, Washington DC and Boston, there's likely to be an American theme here for the next few posts.
This photograph was made in the art galleries district of Manhattan. I'd just visited Aperture and seen James Mollison's playground photographs, and LaToya Ruby Frazier's photographs of her family. Aperture have a great library of their books there, and I had the chance to look through a lot of new books, and was particularly excited to see some out of print books by Robert Adams that I'd not had the chance to see before.
