Another favorite from my “Yorkvillism” project from the summer of 2010… what a great couple of months that was. Drake’s “Thank Me Later” was pretty much the anthem of that summer and I actually ran into him outside ONE Restaurant while shooting for this series. I also saw a lot of interesting people including this man… his shopping bags are from Lacoste and Harry Rosen and his shoes are Prada. “Don’t judge a book by its cover” is all I can think about. :) Again, like the last shot, a pretty unusual detail in this scene which is why I think it’s special. PS - for anyone wondering about the blur in this and the last shot… it’s not Photoshopped, it’s just the fabulous result of a tilt-shift lens.
Nikon D700 + 24mm tilt-shift (love this lens to infinity and beyond)
