Midtown, 44th Street at Third Avenue

This part of midtown is very familiar to me since our office used to be on 47th Street and Second Avenue. Our office was also at Third Avenue between 42nd and 41st. Also at 42nd and Fifth Avenue. Now we're at Park Avenue South between 31st and 32nd. We may be gypsy lawyers but we stick close by Grand Central. We're circling it, actually.

To get back to the subject, there was a Hallmark Card Shop on the corner of 44th and Third Ave. where I have bought many a card, and now it's empty. And in these photographs, I'm standing in front of the empty store and shooting through the window. Inside, the store is completely empty, but there are several square columns covered on all sides with mirrors. So we are seeing 1) the inside of the store, 2) the outside as reflected from the mirrors and 3) the outside as reflected by the window.

These photos don't look like much until you enlarge them. I deliberately left them supersized in the enlargement.

See map.

And I love the top one, too, and the slice of Yellow Cab in the right part of the second photo. Love those whispery shadows.
