Typical Times Square NYC - Old Normal by Randy Andre

August 2020 - Typical Times Square NYC - Old Normal

About the Image(s)

Venturing into Times Square on an old-normal day was like venturing into chaos. An instant overload of sights, sounds and smells. So many people moving in so many different directions, some with destinations, some wandering, some lost, all seemingly at odds with each other yet arriving without too much calamity. Food smells, people smells, music, shouting, laughing, engagements, buses, cabs, cars, horns, all nationalities, all present and accounted for. Will it ever be the same again?

Randy, indeed this image denotes chaos as you describe. the signs give the location. The B&W interpretation is well accomplished, but the chaos prevent me to stop at a focal point, since in every inch of the real estate something is going on. I would have labeled it Pandemonium.   Posted: 08/02/2020 08:03:59

Pandemonium would have been a good name. The non-focal point is classic NYC (or any big city), its that overwhelming, how does this go on day-in and day-out 24/7, 365days/year and yet everybody keeps coming back for more.   Posted: 08/02/2020 15:02:53
