This scene is directly in front of The Metropolitan Museum of Art on 5th Avenue in NYC (out of sight to the right). I caught this scene just as the traffic light had changed. Always ready with my camera, I was able get this shot as the traffic began to move. My intention was to capture the glistening street of a cold winter day in New York and to give the viewer a sense of movement of the bus pulling away from its stop. The yellow-orange taxi cabs and the gray violet buildings makes for an interesting compilmentary color scheme. The steam in the distance adds to the depth, dimension and atmosphere of the painting.
