Times Square, New York

Times Square is a must-see for most tourists in New York. Despite living in New York off and on for ten years, I have never been a tourist in my own city so a trip to Times Square at night seemed in order. At night, it is bright, brash and loud and an absolute joy for street photography. The massive bill boards provide enough light to shoot without flash and the constantly moving crowds refresh the scenes in seconds. When used, flash does provide benefits—the frozen scenes leave you wondering what happened before and after the shutter closed.
