My flickr contact Roy Savoy took this perfectly timed image of two people passing in front of an Old Navy billboard in Times Square, New York with his Ricoh GR II.
My flickr contact Keith Goldstein took this picture of a crumpled piece of paper on a sidewalk in Manhattan (NY) with a face on it.
For me, what’s great about this image is that it’s probably an advertisement but the face is a real person with a story (even the ad has a story) and here it is on a discarded piece of paper on the ground in a city where most people will step over it (or on it). That face is a real person with a life, even if she’s a model for an ad agency. The fact that the wall and sidewalk are grimy and that the paper is white helps the effect of a face peering through a wormhole in time.
I’m not really sure what makes all of this work for me but it does.

It’s heavily processed (maybe HDR?) but it works well for me.
