New York streets at night
The Christmas season is wonderful in New York City. The city is decorated with lights that create wonderful backdrops for street photography. I took this photograph on a mild December day back in 2005. I loved the lights in the trees and wanted to capture the urban scene as the lights reflected on the wet sidewalk. But I needed an additional element to create a focal point. I patiently waited, and then a woman walked in a dark coat. The addition of the shadowy figure in this nighttime urban city photograph created the final touch to this dark, moody street image.
