NYC(New York City) Taxi Speeding Down 5th Avenue

Posted on | Shot on at 21:24:52

A taxi cab races down 5th Avenue in front of Rockafeller Center. Bit of a tribute to Jez. Oh, it’s got nothing on his photos but taxis were all over that night and a bit of a novelty for me :)

  • great panning work here! you’ve managed to capture the newest breed of taxi cab too.. great stho! :)

  • love that line that goes the length of the car and through the tires. don’t know what it is but i think it really adds to this one.

  • @michelei think, if i’m remembering correctly, it was a metal railing in front of me — separating me from the traffic in the street :)
