Street Photography: 200 West 14th Street

It’s been a while since I have posted any street photography work.  It’s easy to get backed up especially as I was starting a new National Park Service commission that gave rise to some artistic and technical and challenges.  Now that so much of the world is under some sort of quarantine, the commission isContinue reading “Street Photography: 200 West 14th Street”

Street Photography: Even More Shapes and Shadows

…but this time, unlike the photographs in my previous posts, these have a whole different feel. Rather than being stark and angular, these are soft and curvy.

Now I’m looking down along 51st. Just turning around results in a completely different image and, yet, its composition still maintains the same theme.Continue reading “Street Photography: More Shapes and Shadows”

That pure white triangular shape juts forward like a weapon with an impliedContinue reading “Street Photography: Shapes and Shadows”

Street Photography: The High Line

© 2019 Xiomaro.com I love encountering what I like to call “free Photoshop” opportunities. By shifting my position, I found a variety of interesting distortions of the building behind me. It was as if I was changing software settings in a live public space. Further, the colors, geometric shapes, and the lettering reminded me ofContinue reading “Street Photography: The High Line”
