Hamilton Heights, 145th Street Between Amsterdam and Convent Avenues

Across the street from those charming town houses are apartment houses, along with a couple of red doors that I wanted to photograph, but the shadows were so obtrusive and the contrast so great that nothing worked until I got this shot. The shadows and washed out quality make it kind of noirish, if a photo with red and yellow in it can be called noirish. I guess the shadowy man also has something to do with it.

See map.

I like the feel of this very much. It's painterly. And the reds are beautiful.

I, too, like this (anything with shadows appeals to me). I like the way the red seems to bulge out).
