Spring and Broadway, SoHo

http://www.jamesmaherphotography.com/images/0000/4766/soho_spring_and_broadway.jpg

1/320th at F13, ISO 800 (28mm).

Is there a larger shopping mall in the world?

While the cast-iron architecture in SoHo may seem grand and elegant, the reality about them is much darker.  Here is some history from Blue Guide NY.

"During the decade between 1860 and 1890, most of the cast-iron architecture so admired today was constructed, the buildings serving as factories or warehouses, often with shopfronts on the ground floor.  Appealing as they may seem now with their Corinthian columns, Palladian windows, or French Second Empire dormers, many functioned as sweatshops where immigrants from southern and eastern Europe endured 12 or more hours a day of tedious labor."

Makeup Artists, Macy's

http://www.jamesmaherphotography.com/images/0000/4750/makeup_artists_macys.jpg

1/320th at F8, ISO 800 (28mm).

This one looks great in classic black and white, but wouldn't it be blasphemous to show makeup artists in black and white?

Holding Hands, Grand Central

http://www.jamesmaherphotography.com/images/0000/4746/holding_hands_grand_central.jpg

1.3 Seconds at F10, ISO 400 (70mm).

I've been experimenting a bit lately with movement in Grand Central.  It's very tough to get something decent and takes a lot of trial and error.  Not sure exactly where I'm going with this, but I think the goal is to capture the flow and feeling of figures in motion but still hold enough detail that you can create a story out of them.

Green Polka Dots, Subway

http://www.jamesmaherphotography.com/images/0000/4744/green_polka_dots_subway.jpg

1/60th at F2.8, ISO 3200 (28mm).

If you compare this image to the subway work of Bruce Davidson, it gives you a sense of how drastically New York has changed over the last 30 years.

This also reminds me of this image.

Urban Tigers

http://www.jamesmaherphotography.com/images/0000/4734/tigers-1.jpg

1/320th at F5.6, ISO 1600 (28mm).

You walk around New York with a camera searching and these images just hit you in the gut, and more and more each time you see it.  It fascinates me how the city collects and fosters tough women.  These shirts feel like a suit of armor.
