"old-fashioned curiosity"

Day 5.  Same light and color scheme as yesterday and another recognizable New York landmark. I love pattern which I think is what draws me to streetscapes.  The challenge is balancing all that pattern with abstract forms so you don't give it all away.  I had fun abstracting and suggesting the people's shapes.  Just enough but not too much.  The lights and reflections in the windows were just frosting on the cake.
