Inwood, 208th Street

Forgot to say last night that this group of Inwood photos was shot last Sunday, Labor Day Weekend. I went in search of 208th Steet, a little bitty half block on my map. Here it is, just beyond that last yellow pipe, the entirety, every bit of 208th Street. (The pavement in front of the pipes is the end of Ninth Avenue.) I'm not making this up. There's a very official street sign behind me as I'm taking this shot. Just over the shrubs lies the Harlem River.

Aaah, gray, lived-in concrete. This photograph is beautifully composed, and alive with so much depth and detail. I love it.

The feathery backdrop of the trees is a lovely contrast to the severe architectural setting. Difficult to discern as clearly, however, if not enlarged.

I love the two neighborhoods - the high rises and the yellow street pipes.
