There are plenty of these guys out hustling in New York; pedaling madly through the streets with and looking for passengers. Frankly, I think it would be scary as heck to be the driver let alone a passenger (those taxi drivers in that city do not play!!!) but they do what they do and I salute their bravery. The day shift shot was taken on 5th Ave. I think ; I believe I panned the shot as he wheeled by which led to this effect.
AV – 1/64 – F 4.5 – 100ISO – 50mm prime
The night shift guy was heading in my direction while we were walking in Times Square at midnight (yes, we are a little adventurous) and I got this great head on shot.
TV – 1/800 – F 1.4 – 1600 ISO – 50mm prime
We were there at midnight too, I just wondered when everyone went to bed…
They don’t! They’re all zombies! LOL Who knows! It’s crazy fun sometimes.
How things change. In my youth when I visited NYC, we didn’t go out until at least 11:00 pm. and rarely got back to the room until sunrise. Now when I’m there, I’ll have a nice dinner, maybe stop for a drink on the way home, but I’m in bed by midnight easily. How do you define “old fart”?
Nope! Not touching that one 🙂 But it’s been a long time since I stayed up till the early morn.
Cool shots Teri…brave souls they are!!!
That’s one way to say it! lol
