A rather large face of a man unbeknownst to me. When you first come upon him, you feel strangely self-conscious. It’s kinda weird. Click once on image to enlarge.

Something catches my eye and I photograph it, always with the intention of reworking it into something I can call my own. My thinking: It’s not what you look at that matters but what it is you see and how you see it. That’s what matters. That’s how the artist shines through.

    Kinda weird alright, and there are people climbing his face as well? Amazing find, Mark!

  • Hehe, yeah it’s funny, the stuff you come across here in New York. Its neighborhoods are forever changing. Put your camera around your neck and head out into the Big Apple! No telling who or what you’ll see. I love it! Thanks for sharing your thoughts Mel. Much appreciated.

    Delightful find, Mark. Essential NYC. It will wear away, but something equally essential will replace it, sooner or later.

  • You’re probably right Paul. Thanks for your great comment!
