New York City. Everything seems like something you will want to capture and remember forever. Larger than life scenes are everywhere you turn. Some things are iconic “New York”; the colors, the people, the lifestyle, the construction on every block masked by the daily routine of life in New York City, and of course, the taxis.
“Man About Town” captures not only the uniqueness of the enormous and suggestive advertisement that, except for a telling doorway to the construction site, would be just another message for the masses, but the pace of the city; the iconic yellow taxi flows by, flanked to the left and right with bright, red movement, while the “New Yorker” steps forth to hail a taxi from the sea to fast moving yellow carriages; scenes that could only mean one thing, New York City.
As the scorching summer sun moves across the sky over 5th Avenue, the shadows of the evening lights for the scantily clad “Man About Town” move in an eye catching pattern across the subject’s shirtless skin. Even HE appears to be sweating in this New York mid-afternoon summer heat. The “New Yorker” is still desperately trying to gain shelter in an air conditioned NYC Taxi that that just keeps on moving.
