Neon on West 36th and Fashion

I stopped at a red light while foot-traffic crossed in front of me in the Fashion District. This is a color study of socio-economic differences in choices of color in regards to fashion in NYC back in early April. Our Strava Shoot crew had rented a duplex condo in Harlem because the price was right and we were close to the GW Bridge. Fashion in Harlem often had a bit of neon thrown in here and there. A jacket, sneakers, detailing of some sort and accessories. I thought nothing of it until this lone neon green figure, in a sea of subdued blacks, grays and other dark colors entered my frame.

Color, reflections and light play from The View Restaurant of the Marriott Marquis and from the flickering neon of Times Square below. This shot was captured on the second rotation during dusk and is a result of Officer Hoolihan’s suggestion, when asked where to visit in the City, while shooting the Central Park portion for a short film for Strava. This is a study of the subtle variations in color and visual mood enhanced through the Photo Editor app and taken with the iPhone 4S’s standard camera app.
