This is one of mine, take a few years back. It was a huge blizzard here in NYC. I took this of the almost deserted road leading to the Midtown Tunnel, with a church in the foreground - only a solitary bus on a road usually filled with traffic.

The result reminded me of old noir photos of the 30s and 40s, like the cover of a mystery novel. I PP out a lot of modern signs, and some distracting lights and objects.

The result is one of my personal favorites, one of the few hanging on my wall and the walls of many others who wanted it. An editor of Aperture Magazine saw it, said she loved it and said it reminded her of an Edward Steichen photo, but unfortunately it was not published in Aperture to my disappointment.

It's interesting to me that many posters need to know exactly "what it is", "what's going on",  instead of letting the photo evoke a feeling or emotion. in any case, together with the Saul Leiter photo thread, a fascinating experiment. Thanks for participating...
