This is an image shot in New York down an alley just off 72nd street somewhere. I saw these 3 men in suits conversing and snapped them in the moment. Later on I realized what an amazing composition I had made with out the slightest of thought. The road leads you right into the figures, and the walls force your eyes down again. I particularly enjoy the reflecting sunlight from the windows onto the wall on the right. The Print was made with ultramarine blue and red layers, and finally charcoal grey in the deepest of tones.
