Shadow Shot Sunday/What lies Beneath


Shadow Shot Sunday again. See Hey Harriet for details and super collages.
24th Street between 7th and 8th Avenues. Saturday morning.



As above with chewing gum and the photographer's shadow.



I walked up to 5th Avenue visit blogger Frances this morning, and was astounded to discover the whole sidewalk ripped up revealing girders and a whole subterranean world.



Another view of the same thing.
So New York goes down as well as up. There is a whole other city beneath us..........

  1. That first shot is absolutely gorgeous! I can't help wondering if these shadow shots might look even more interesting in black and white.

  3. Love the first one best! I can't believe people just toss their chewing gum on the sidewalk. What dirty little piglets they are!

    Hey your link in Mr Linky didn't work again. Weird. So I'll go delete it & add it again.

    Enjoy the rest of your weekend :)

  4. Love your city shots! The first photo immediately struck me - and I agree with the black and white comment. The shadows from the fencing are so crisp !

  5. The first shot is stunning, really. And the second pic is what photography is all about! Your last two reminds me of what is going on in this town. They keep tearing down just to build up again! Have a happy Sunday, Elizabeth!

    Interesting sidewalk structure. How high up are the sidewalks?

  16. Great to see you on Saturday, Elizabeth. Afterwards, on my little break I did a walk down to the wonderful green market at Union Square, and along the way, stopped to peer into that intriguing view below the sidewalk.

    Tonight, there are electrical workers drilling away at the street right across from my front window. Maybe I will have my own deep view available tomorrow morning.
