What a cool shot..for some reason it looks old...like the 60s. Maybe it's the dress combined with the look of the film.

we must have been there at the same time :) i love the western side of Manhattan as well! I especially love Lower Manhattan, though--east and west. I love the Lower East Side, Greenwich Village, and Chinatown. I do love the Upper West Side, too--but it's not as exciting to me as the Village/LES/and other part of Lower Manhattan. It's a nice place to live, though--my friends who live there love it.

I know it might get old for other people, but for some reason I've always loved people taking pictures of other people taking pictures. This is like that but with a model.

I am scared to take pictures like this, because I'm always afraid people will beat me up for taking their picture, so I almost always have a friend smiling and waving in the foreground if I take a picture of people I don't know. Did they do anything or care? I mean you could be giving away top secret fashion, like a dress with black and white squiggly lines.

I went out to Times Square one night and took about 100 photos of people taking photos of their friends and family. ;)

I was momentarily concerned that they might get mad that I shot this photo, but they ignored me. I think it if was a true fashion secret, they wouldn't be working on the streets of Manhattan. There was a small crowd (like 5-10 people) at any one time watching them. The main thing I was concerned about was using my polaroid camera--with manual focus and all--as a street cam and not wasting a shot of Time-Zero with a crappy setup. However, the model was (obviously) striking little poses already, so I took advantage of that one. The best part was that no random bystander wandered into the photo, and that the faded image of expired film matched her retro dress.

There's another funny element of this photo. In high fashion, the models do two runs with the photographer, usually. The first run is a polaroid run. This allows the photographer to test elements of the lighting and styling before shooting the film for the shoot. So models and fashion photogs have millions of polaroids of these test shoots floating around. This is like one of those--but with the photographer, too. :)

I like the angle as it has a fashion photography feeling too, plus it gets a really nice 60's look thanks to the expired film - model's dress combination.
