I took Friday off so these are Thursday's commute, morn and night.
The BB does best for me under low light conditions - indoors, underground and at dusk. Midday, outdoors, the BB cannot compete with the Nikons and Cannons. Yesterday's posts of the walk to the train are the first long experiments with evening city light - I have taken a few other BB shots at night but few indeed.

7th and W 34th.
The Times Square series below has a rawer sexuality, a stronger sense of voyeurism, than anything else I have shown. Is it because at night there is a higher level or vulnerability or because at night more subjects are dressed to go to clubs? I had also drunk a few beers before walking to Penn, so that also is part of the mix.
The other day I went into St Patrick's Cathedral to take a few pictures - coming out of midday sun like a BB vampire. After one photo of a subject lighting a candle, I decided I could not do my candid shots there.
Well, back to my more regular routine...
