Not really a parking lot for biclycles, but it could well be. The strange thing is snow was expected today. Who would want to bike in the snow, with wind, in New York City fine streets? Not me!

Rushing into the parking

Another car rushing, this time into a parking garage. I taking shots of the parking lights, playing with the zoom while taking the shots, when this car entered the parking. Without hesitation I took as many photos as I could (three) while still moving the zoom in and out during the shot. As the previous photos, this was shot handheld at low shutter speed (1/3 sec).

Almost everybody knows the rule of thirds, and some go even further and employ it, but there are other ways for creating a good composition. One that I particularly like is the use of repetition in some elements. A rather uninteresting scene can be converted into a nice photograph by the use of repetition. This is the case, by my taste anyway, of this photograph. By the way you can find parking garages like this all over Manhattan, always with lots of announcements and signal and always full.

Finding a parking in New York City is not an easy task. If you find yours, donĀ“t hesitate, go for it!
