Here I opened up with the light. Don't know if I like the crop or other shot to tell the story. He is an interesting subject, no doubt. Taken in John Jay Park on the UES of Manhattan right on the East River. The pink shoes, the gold handle of the cane, the silver ring, the tiny cigar, the wrinkles of his skin, the chipped green paint of an old wood park bench, what is he reading? Interesting shot

Notes: The 17-55 did well here, even with creep and dust in the lens it still shoots well. the 24-70 could have done well too. But there is something about the 17-55 that gives is it a much different look even at the equiv mm of the 24-70
