Broome Street

I've been so busy since I got back from New York City that I haven't shared my favorite shots from the trip! I'm actually heading to Florida tomorrow for a super-fast trip, so here's one in the meantime--my favorite photo, I think, from New York this time. I took it on the Lower East Side, wandering around in the late morning on a very cold day, with my Grandmother's 1960's Polaroid 104 camera around my neck. What's great about walking around with a giant vintage Polaroid camera is that random strangers will stop to talk with you because they are enchanted by the device. It's such a wonderful conversation piece!

Broome Street (2010)
Camera: Polaroid 104
Film: Polaroid Sepia 100
Developed inside my coat on a below-freezing day!

I love the tones and light and shadows in this photo, as well as the timelessness of this street corner in one of Lower Manhattan's most interesting neighborhoods. There's a print of this one in my Etsy shop. Stay tuned for more from the Big Apple!
