Mould Fountain, City Hall Park, Lower Manhattan, New York City
A quick shutter speed allowed me to “freeze” the water in the fountain and capture this young woman mid-stride.
The long shadows of this beautiful fountain caught my eye first, but then I decided to explore the effects of different shutter speeds on the wonderful water features. Once I decided to “freeze” the action, I realized I wanted more in the frame and waited for the “right” someone to come along. Bicyclists, joggers, businessmen all passed by. But it was the patterns of this young woman’s ensemble that led me to press the shutter button.
