Taxis Stuck in Times Square

Taxis Stuck in Times Square


After a long afternoon wandering around the city and getting some great photos with this wide-angle lens, I walked into Times Square, where I was scheduled to meet a friend. The day had entailed a slow self-guided photo tour of Bryant Park, its ice-skating rink and Christmas shops, then a nice saunter on down to Grand Central Station, before doing a 180 and heading right back to Times Square.

As a wandered around, looking for some of those quintessential touristy shots, jam-packed with taxis, people and bright lights, I came across this scene. Traffic was completely stopped at rush hour and these old friends decided to chop it up to kill the time, which wasn’t going to pass quickly.
