Was having a tea waiting on some one in an old dinner in Toronto, usually you don’t get great tea but this one was good. TV was on, some stripper claiming she slept with the president when then I notice this well dressed man enjoying his meal. Fired a few shot when person I was waiting for had arrived and I had to leave. BABAK Photo May 2018 Toronto

Saturday Night NYC

Soon after my wife and I finished looking for houses for sale in Atlanta we decided to take a trip to NYC where we took a walk about in East Village and Washington Square Park. I prefer shooting street photography at night because I feel the night takes away some light and color distractions and always can be more dramatic. Shooting street video at night has it own challenges but I wanted to capture the Saturday night feel of East village in 2017s NYC. I find old street photographs & films ( if any) of old NYC or other cities fascinating. Its always interesting to see the changes and how and what people were like. Hope some of the images age well.

Union Square MAGA

Jovi Val -Pro Trump Demonstrator wearing a MAGA hat at Union Square In NYC with American Flag Photographed By Street Photographer BABAKJovi 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!

This is one of those times  that I could see the shot as soon as I walked in to this cafe. I Just had to make sure no one or nothing destroyed the moment. I like to have some connection with faces I shoot,  find out who and why they are but some times you dont want to mess up the moment and  you shoot the face and make up the story in your head.
