I photographed this image while I was going to a hair fashion shoot in NYC. I always carry a camera some where that is easily accessible. Camera in a bag is pretty much useless for street photography because by the time you pull it out and turn it on the moment is long gone. Street Photography is all about seeing things that are going to happen and be ready for them.
I noticed this guy listening improved musicians in Washington Sq Park NYC – He was jumping from seat to seat and at one point he got down on the floor smoking. it only lasted a few seconds. I like the positioning and his gesture. I shot this on my Fuji x 100 BABAK Photo

Before you know it you have arrived at your destination. I shot this at 1/4000 second and high iso BABAK Photo Oct 2017 Canada

Jovi Vai in action – Union Square and Washington Square park, they are a few 100 feet away from each other but they have completely different feel and character, even with in the parks there are different pockets of people. Union square is some ways like “Speakers corner ” in London England where people gather to protest, rap, perform and some times debate. You always meet interesting people at street debates. Free speech is an iq test!
