Photographing at night

Night photography

NYC little Italy Night Photo

Night shot in downtown New York

Picture taken in New York somewhere on the border of Chinatown and Little Italy.
It was quite a dark night and literally I had to quit breathing in order to take this hand-held very long exposure. When I was done exposing I noticed everybody on the sidewalk stopped and waited for me to take the picture.
It was quite strange!
Anyway, I was doubtful the photo will turn out at all. Glad I was wrong.
This photo was used as a cover photo for the photoblogs magazine which doesn’t exist anymore but I found the web archive version of it: Photoblogs Magazine Archive
