NYC Morning

Once, In New York City near the Financial District, I turned around and saw this scene.

Not quite.

I saw people hustling their way through morning rush hour.

The light was fine, but the motion was not. I went to a very old trick.

I set the shutter speed for two seconds, and the f stop for as small as it would go without underexposing the picture. I believe that was f /16.

I stood in everybody’s way and pushed the button, maybe ten times and crossed my fingers. No LCD chimping. This image was made on film.

Luckily, I was in New York. The home of many professional labs.I saw my film about two hours later, I quickly looked at the film and… whew.

Life during morning rush hour.
