Thematic Photographic 309 - In the Pink

Hot city, cool treat
New York, NY
July 2014
I've learned the secret to getting a primo parking spot in one of the most notoriously traffic-clogged cities on the planet: Drive a food truck. Even better, make it a pink Frostee truck on a warm summer's night right on the edge of Columbus Circle, a the southwest corner of Central Park. If only I had known this in high school I might have been more popular. Ah, hindsight.

I've also got a bit of a thing for fluorescent light spilling out into the night, so it was a given that I'd grab this shot as I headed back from my photographic tour of the neighborhood. Only as I started composing the scene did I realize there was a cop double-parked over there on the right. It didn't stop me from taking the picture, mind you. I was almost looking forward to the opportunity to talk my way out of it if it came to that.

The things we do for our art.

Your turn: You know what to do. And if you don't, here's the lowdown: Take a pic. Post it to your blog or website. Leave a comment here so folks know where to find it. Visit other participants. Add additional contributions through the week - serial posting is encouraged, as is bringing a friend to the party. For more info on how Thematic works, head here. And thanks for continuing to support our little photographic insanity. It may seem bizarre, but it gets us out and shooting. Which, in the end, is all that matters.
