Saw the Mapplethorpe exhibit while at the Guggenheim, which of course inspired me to shoot square portraits in black and white.
The Guggenheim is such a designed space that one can hardly look in any direction without seeing an abstract composition. I never fail to take such pictures at each visit.
Our Facebook series of “permission-granted” street portraits continues with this one of a young woman knitting outside the Guggenheim Museum in April, 2005. Unfortunately, the sun was very bright and I didn’t have a polarizing filter leading to some blown highlights.
