9/11 Tiles for America memorial is created by the people and dedicated to the events of 9/11/ 2001, located in the heart of the Village in New York City. The image is shot handheld during the 2017 Gay Pride weekend in New York City during the evening while walking the village streets with my wife and daughter.

Shooting street photography handheld unleashes a world of creative possibilities. It is easy to shoot handheld during the day when the light is sufficient to expose the image correctly, but during dusk or evening, getting a good-quality picture is a challenge without a tripod.

I used the Sony a7R II Alpha Mirrorless Digital Camera with the Sony FE 35mm F1.4 lens. I always shoot auto ISO with a wide open lens (f1.4) at 1/125th shutter speed - handheld. The high-speed Sony F1.4 lens allowed me to shoot a very reasonable 250 ISO image.

The gritty cool colors in the image are entirely created in Adobe Lightroom. The screenshots below show the fairly aggressive settings used to create the gritty feel of this image.
