Default Saint Patrick's Day in NYC

Some photos I took on Fifth Avenue and 42nd Street after the Saint Patrick's Day Parade. A great time to practice in-your-face photography. (Well, these are about as close as I would go...)

#1) I saw the dog from behind so I walked to the front and took this picture.


#2) They started making poses as soon as I raised my camera.


#3) The St. Patrick's Day Parade was just over so the young crowd is pretty pumped up.


#4) This man crossing 41st Street stopped in the middle of the street when he saw me taking his picture.


Thank you for looking. C&C welcome.

Thanks, ewheeler20. Yes, it's all pp. I separated the two guys using Topaz Remask then applied radial blur on the background.

#5) Here they are again.

Well, you done real good. I had no such luck today. By the time I got out of work, everyone was in the pubs and that is simply not me. #3 is excellent.

Wow, I don't know how you captured your third shot, but to me, it puts you right in the middle of all the action, wow, way to draw one eys into a photo. I've liked and enjoyed a lot of your photos, but this is one of my favourties of yours. All the best. Ned

Thanks a lot, jgredline, Ned. I'm thinking of printing business cards to hand out to my subjects. That way they can see their pictures.

The guy on the right in #2 actually asked me if I had a website and a business card. I just said he can google "steves digicams" because I'll upload it there. He gave me a hip handshake (like arm-wrestling) and walked away saying "steves digicams" several times as if memorizing it.

#6) The cop on the right saw me raising my camera so I paused then gave me a slight nod.


#7) Corralling the crowd. I think the cops are limiting the space occupied by the young crowd because the cleaning crews have arrived.
