Hey Mom, you know that guy I said I was bringing home for dinner? Well, I forgot to tell you that sometimes he dresses a little … ummm … oddly.

This is the continuation of a photo-project that I began in the summer of 2008: a random collection of "interesting" people in a broad stretch of the Upper West Side of Manhattan — between 72nd Street and 104th Street, especially along Broadway and Amsterdam Avenue.

As I indicated when I started this project in 2008, I don’t like to intrude on people’s privacy, so I normally use a telephoto lens in order to photograph them while they’re still 50-100 feet away from me; but that means I have to continue focusing my attention on the people and activities half a block away, rather than on what’s right in front of me.

I’ve also learned that, in many cases, the opportunities for an interesting picture are very fleeting — literally a matter of a couple of seconds, before the person(s) in question move on, turn away, or stop doing whatever was interesting. So I’ve learned to keep the camera switched on (which contradicts my traditional urge to conserve battery power), and not worry so much about zooming in for a perfectly-framed picture … after all, once the digital image is uploaded to my computer, it’s pretty trivial to crop out the parts unrelated to the main subject.

Thus far, I’ve generally avoided photographing bums, drunks, crazies, and homeless people. There are a few of them around, and they would certainly create some dramatic pictures; but they generally don’t want to be photographed, and I don’t want to feel like I’m taking advantage of them. I’m still looking for opportunities to take some "sympathetic" pictures of such people, which might inspire others to reach out and help them. We’ll see how it goes …

The only other thing I’ve noticed, thus far, is that while there are lots of interesting people to photograph, there are far, far, far more people who are not so interesting. They’re probably fine people, and they might even be more interesting than the ones I’ve photographed … but there was just nothing memorable about them.

I know they dress funny, Mama, but this isn’t Mumbai…

Note: this photo was published in a Jul 12,2011 blog titled "Eye of the Tiger."

This, like several other pictures throughout this album, was taken in Verdi Square – tiny little park bounded by Broadway on the west, Amsterdam Ave on the east, and 72/73rd street on the north/south.

At one point, I noticed a young woman out of the corner of her eye, as she navigated in the opposite direction of most pedestrians, from the southern side of the park to the north. I thought her dog was very cute indeed, but there were so many other pedestrians and obstacles in the way (e.g., trash cans) that I couldn’t get a clean shot until they were almost out of range. This was the best I could do…

This is part of an evolving photo-project, which will probably continue throughout the summer of 2008, and perhaps beyond: a random collection of "interesting" people in a broad stretch of the Upper West Side of Manhattan — between 72nd Street and 104th Street, especially along Broadway and Amsterdam Avenue.

This was also taken in Verdi Square, at Broadway and 72nd Street. In addition to the workers, commuters, transients, and bums, you’ll occasionally see tourists like this woman, with several suitcases and assorted odds and ends. I don’t know what she was reading, but it didn’t seem to be a map or tourist guide…

Roughly a week later, I saw the same woman again, with the same suitcases, still here in Verdi Square; see the picture here. It seems that my initial impression of her may have been incorrect …

This was taken in Central Park, about a block away from the 72nd Street entrance on the west side of the park, as I was strolling south…
