awesome, this cart looks like it’s in motion. bye bye smart car, hello smart cart.
But boy does she make a pretty picture. And boy, the black and white does something here, lights it up like a movie backlot, except with all the detail it’s clearly not a movie backlot, so the image steps out of time and, as New York can sometimes do, enables a seemingly mundane scene to become emblematic of modernity itself.
I love how the precision and fussiness of symmetry meet the visual details of snow in the city.
May the shifts in such cramped exposed quarters be relatively short.
The coffee seller would probably enjoy seeing see your lovely picture of her. She’s very nice — always greets me with “Hello, beautiful!”
Khoi, I’m really enjoying your photographs lately!
I love Mister President, and his iconic billboard on subtraction’s home page. But… I wonder if these new images will ever find their way to that spot. Perhpas that div should be called #doghouse– or better, #whitehouse — instead of #cover.
Great picture. Give HER a copy and get rid of your guilt.
hi Khoi, so nice of you write about her. sitting bahrain, i would say, i would love have a coffee from her cart. can you please have a coffee for yourself on my behalf and show her photograph.
Thank you! Your remarks have been sent to Khoi.
