Pictures of the Day: Tourist DNA
I love the individuals and couples I see standing at corners puzzling over maps, orienting themselves to the Manhattan grid, often open to being helped by a stranger, excited about being on their own in nYc.
And then, they take pictures. So imagine the tourist photographer as a sort of reptile: coiled to get the best angle, desperate to get that famous building in the background of the picture of their companion; and then uncoiled and ready to continue placidly touring.
These were shot in the middle of August, 2011, in the Flatiron District.
