HA! Comedy Club 2006 Street Photograph
Moody street photograph image was taken at night in Manhattan, New York. A person uses an old Changing the sign on the HA! Comedy Club in New York City. The photo was taken in 2006, one of my many trips to New York to shoot the people and places of one of the most vibrant cities in the world.
In our world of digital signage in front of the building, having a photograph where a man manually changes the sign's letters is nostalgic for times gone by. To me, this is great timely street photography. The man wears a cap and a long overcoat holding a long pole used to add and physically move each letter on the backlit white signage. Two passersby watch the man in amusement.
