On a quiet street off Fifth Avenue, tree shadows are cast all the way down the street. Visit Hey Harriet to see a fun lineup of other shadow shots and guidelines to participate.
Ed. Note: In the comments sections, many of you have asked where the people are, commenting that the sidewalk is empty. A minute before I took the photo, the sidewalk was filled with lots of people walking in either direction — towards Fifth Avenue and Madison Avenue. Also a line up of automobiles filled the street. This is actually a busy street because it’s one of the crosstown streets. All the vehicles on this road are headed to the East side. The bus going across town stops here to let people off at the bus stop. This particular street can get busy and then it becomes empty for a few minutes. I happened to be lucky that no one was on the sidewalk or street at that time I took my photos. I took advantage of the empty street, since I was more interested in taking photos of the the shadows. It all happened in a New York minute — Paz’s New York Minute.
