While the economy has certainly increased the number of boarded up buildings the past 2-3 years, as well as the prevalence of graffiti, I am also certain that I started noticing both more since starting to photograph the city actively. This is at Seventh Avenue and 22nd Street — hardly a distressed neighborhood by any means.

I did not notice the poster “Complexions,” nor connect it to the building facade, until working on the image last night.

  1. Fascinating facade with the contrasting colors in the windows – some glassed, and some boarded. The poster really adds something as do the cars. Nice work and well spotted

  2. Nice composition, Mark. I like the placement of the water tower. The fire escapes lend themselves nicely to the scene too.

  3. Love this shot, Mark!! Great composition here, and the tones and textures are great! It’s one of those shots that could almost be from a time 50 years ago. Your processing is just so perfect, it’s absolutely sympathetic to the subject you’ve captured here. Top drawer!
