Shift Shots

Williamsburg, Brooklyn

Queensboro Bridge

In SoHo as well as other arty neighborhoods like Williamsburg and the East Village, there is a dichotomy between classes and yet still an apparent tolerance of street art. However especially in the case of the Manhattan neighborhoods, the graffiti and such are leftovers from the early 90's. So what we have here are mostly high end import cars sitting in a parking lot where the wall behind still exhibits a more colorful New York which existed more prominently not so long ago.

aw thanks man, I use a canon digital rebel xti. its quick and cheap for a camera of its kind.

but then I do some photoshop to add contrast, bump the colors, and dark the bright spots.

only complaint i have is i wish more of the pictures i took had sharper focus.
