City as Subject

New York City is always inserting itself into photos. It stands there are says “look at me. Take my picture.”

When I’m out shooting street photography, I automatically shoot the city without having to think about it.

I wonder if I would find photography half as interesting without the city as a subject?

Whether it plays the lead role or a supporting role, it is always there.

Whether you are shooting in the typical tourist attractions or off the beaten path, it’s not difficult to connect images to New York City. Its personality is evident.
