Through the window – west 44th st.

We arrived very early into NYC and as per their plot to make travelers even more uncomfortable than the cramped flights they were just on, the hotel said our room wouldn’t be ready for another few hours.  So we left our bags with a bellman and off we went in search of sustenance.  Stopped at this French-ish restaurant and fortunately we were seated in the front by the huge window.  As I waited for my much needed coffee I decided to do some street photography from a different point of view – through glass again.   As most people do not look directly into the window of a restaurant unless they are curious or hungry,  I was able to capture people going about their day without them noticing me as I lingered over my coffee and tried to imagine a scenario for each person 🙂

It was a comfortable way to capture a slice of New York life.

    Fascinating glimpse of life! No one seems engaged with anyone or anything — except the ones connected to others on a phone.

    • What a great anthropological observation! But that’s New York and probably many big cities for you. The cell/mobile phones of the world have separated us even further from others in face time.

    What restaurant? The only time I remember New Yorkers looking at each other and slowing down to engage with each other was right after 9-11. Everyone in the city was so fragile and unnerved that for a brief moment in time community was established as people made their way to and fro. It was lovely.
