This tree stands still as people stroll by it every day in Union Square. I decided to make the tree, not the busy square, the subject in this photo by focusing more strongly on the bark then the street.
The city holds a wealth of words. In only a few short blocks, I was able to find enough letters to spell out the alphabet. The chaotic and incongruent borders are meant to reflect on the busy, chaotic atmosphere of the city.
Despite the converse sneakers, cars and traffic light poles, this photo manages to convey an old-fashioned aura. It’s probably because of the cobblestone road, courtesy of Broadway, Union Square.
Union Square is a great place to take photos because it is always filled with people and activity. In this picture, I tried to create strong leading lines. I focused the camera on the railing instead of my subject, the woman with the denim jacket.
