The best way to soak in New York City is on foot. This “point of view” shot of my family taking a walk through Times Square is busy and colourful, and you can see their heads turning to look. We knew we looked liked tourists but thankfully so did most of the other people!
I raised the camera high to make a point of their perspective. The idea is to give the viewer a feel of what it would be like to be that person in the foreground of the picture. It’s a journalistic-style image with frozen movement and it documents a moment in quite flat light. It’s not my usual style of photography but Times Square is not my usual style of location.
The Judging a Photograph series will return after the school holidays.
