On my way to capture the east light streaming through the windows in Grand Central Station spotted this scene. The east light penetrating this cab stand. With the Chrysler building as a back drop, could not resist.

Very evocative image. Looks like something from the 30's. Love the style and the starkness. Very punchy stuff.

Thanks for the comments on my work; thought I'd have a look at your portfolio - good stuff overall, but this one just leaps out at me! It has the 'guts' I like to see in this type of pic - great work!

I like the lines and the way the light is coming through the taxi stand. I'd have been tempted to rotate it a tad to put the verticals straight though.
