I was trapped, standing in a corner for about 200 blocks of this train ride. With inches to spare between me and the next person, I for sure thought there was no chance to go undetected. I opted to take a test shot, not one person heard or saw me. So I just kept shooting until this window opened up 😉
The only thing I ever liked about Times Square is transferring from the 1 to either the N, Q, R, W, 2, 3, or 7 trains. Save the rest for the tourists. 😬
Yo, peep Arsenio Hall in the second picture 😂
At this point in the day I’d already walked a good 12 miles... I was taking breaks at almost every intersection. I was posted here for about 10 mins waiting for something. Shouts to this guy for looking at my camera at the exact moment I needed him too ✊🏾
Swear, people do not hear camera shutters in NY. 😂
I feel an odd sensation of calmness whenever I look at this photo. However, at the actual moment I took this, there was a screaming psychopath that ran right past us down the escalator. New York.

I’ve been asked a few times, “why don’t you just do this for a living?” Usually my responses have ranged from: “nah, i don’t really have the credentials of someone who went to art school” to “I don’t want to burn out chasing gigs”. Some of those things do worry me but the real reason is a fear of public failure. As a result I haven’t ever really campaigned hard as a photographer.
As of last month I quit my full time job, which granted me some clarity to really think things over. Long story short, I’ll give myself a shot to sink or swim for a change. So BOOK ME. 😉 I’ll even have some introductory rates if you mention this post. DM!
I’ve caught some weird looks while out shooting the city. Especially when I post up on a street corner looking at a wall like this. Nobody ever asks what I’m shooting but I can see them straining their eyes to see what I’m seeing 😂
