Joseph Holmes: West Forty Third Street


The above photograph is Joseph Holmes' West Forty Third Street. This image, taken in July 2009, shows a modern look at New York City but at a different angle The viewer's perspective, the yellow line of New York taxis snaking their way across the bottom, the towering apartments overlooking their progress, and the few friends enjoying their day on the roof deck garden all come together to create a picture that moves in your mind.

Joseph Holmes website is here. You might also want to check out this interview which discusses the his style of photography and how he manages to create images such as the West Forty Third photograph you see above.

Now that's what I call a great picture. I've got a roof deck garden, too, by my view is so much less interesting.

They're from high up, but not too far away either. Gives for a great view of things.

I'm stuck with this weird feeling. It's like when I want to go to a party and I shouldn't, but I eventually will? It's.. kinda like that. I like it, so, I like the picture.

Such a cool photo, love the taxis in line all the way around the building. I don't know if I could handle living in NYC but the city pics are so exciting.
