2018 NYC Half Marathon

This was a new course for the NYC Half. I was assigned Chinatown. Although it's a great location to shoot, I was chasing light all morning. It was bright & sunny, clean cold air which made things pretty contrasty. Where the sun didn't shine, the shadows were deep & dark. I was looking for slivers of streaking light that crossed the street or even light that bounced around from building to building to the street/runners. To play that game you have mere minutes to make an image. And then find the next lit area.
