A square crop of a mechanic shop in the East Village, Manhattan. I like how many contrasts there are in this shot: bright and dull, rich and poor, old and new, sharp and smooth… In a city as vibrant and beautiful as New York City, this is a scene most people might avert their eyes from but it is exactly the type of set-up I seek out for my photos!

    I like the angle of this shot, it leads your eyes across the photo.

    Really gritty; I like it. The colors pop and the soft focus on the side is done really well.

    Great choice of focal point in this one! Love the details all over the photo, even the ones out of focus.

    Although its a busy image, its jiving with me. Really love the blur and nice subtle processing.
