Very nice shot and observation. Though I don’t understand the title, “Canyon of Zeros”… what does this mean?
ah you captured the sensation of other worldliness well in this photo.
great shot for sure. btw, what do you mean with the title?
Well it was intended to be ambiguous, but basically it’s a pun on “canyon of heroes,” the section of lower Broadway in Manhattan (not far from where this picture was taken) where ticker-tape parades have traditionally been held. “Zeroes” refers to the money that it takes to construct an environment within Manhattan that feels apart from Manhattan.
So much for ambiguity.
I lived and worked down here until last year. Really enjoyed it there, thanks for the post and the photo!
Thank you! Your remarks have been sent to Khoi.
