My view of the New York Public Library
I was on a rooftop across the street from the New York Public library and I quickly took out my camera but waited for the perfect moment. I wanted to capture the library from a unique angle and wait for an interesting pattern of people walking out of the building. I didn't want it to be too busy or too barren, just a perfect amount of people which is a risk because it's NYC and that can change at any time.
Why I love this picture? My eyes get very excited looking around. The way the lions sit, how the whole image tilts to the right, small tree to the left and big tree to the right are perfectly lopsided which brings that side weight. The color of their leaves, showing off their branches are subtle but really complement the white stone of the library.
The way the people are walking out, notice they fall to the right which again brings weight to the tilt. There is a fluidity I'm drawn to. Even the silver generator on the top left bring a movement to the image, spilling into the arches and lines of the near by roofs.
