All the rain we got in 09' spoiled many a day off for me last year when I wanted to go photograph. So after a particularly bad stretch of rained out days off, a sunny Sunday broke the streak and I decided to go out and photograph New Yorkers trying to enjoy a sunny Sunday. For my location I decided on the South Street Seaport. But when I got there I discovered a music festival was happened on the grounds and the place was too packed to walk around and photograph individuals milling about.
I figured I could either leave and find another spot to photograph, or stay and make the best of it. I chose the latter, seeing as I was there and so were a ton of New Yorkers, and they certainly were enjoying their day in the sunshine. I decided to record my trip through the crowd starting from the back on the balcony, and then take shots as I wriggled my way through the crowd to finally get as near to the stage as someone without a press pass could.
