The High Line: March 8

Tourists on the High Line in NYC

Yesterday I went out with the mission to make a photo, not take a photo.  All too often I find myself snapping and running vs. taking the time to wait for the shot.  I want my street photography to push beyond the limits of simply being in the right place at the right time.  This is what I found along the High Line.

The ultimate goal is to combine these photos into a series called ‘Tourists.’  I am fascinated by society’s constant need to document everything, yet the photos that result say absolutely nothing.  Why do we take so many selfies?  I feel no such need to take selfies, so what am I missing?  I brought only my Canon 16-35mm wide angle lens.
