Little Italy at night
May 16, 2015
I went out one evening while I was in New York and went and shot a couple of
photos. Almost all of them are imperfect in some way; the composition on
a few are off, they were all "exposed to the left", the focus on
another is wrong, another is just a little soft, some haven't got the tonal
hierarchy that I'd really want... But they are a learning experience in
shooting at night.

You'll have to imagine that some of these are what they "could have
been". On the other hand, the magic of media is that it provokes the
imagination: so in some deeply utterly twisted sense, what they "could
have been" is what they are!
Or maybe that is all thinking too much. Maybe they are just candy from a
fast lens at night in the rain. No substantiative value, but it tastes good
for a moment...
