So... I probably took 700 photos for this challenge.. all in the three days because the rest of the week was a blizzard here! So I'd say weather was definitely a limiting factor for NYC.

In the end I felt I had three to choose from, but couldn't get the girl out of my mind. She's not the humorous Winogrand, but to me the couple is quirky enough that Garry would have enjoyed them. I was mesmerized by her seemingly disconcerted expression and, of course, intrigued by the attire. To those who mentioned it (or were bothered by it), Winogrand was pretty spontaneous and tilt came with the territory. I would have preferred to see the whole of the girl's head but the emotion is all there.

My other two potentials were these - Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1102735.jpg and Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1102825.jpg

Any and all comments appreciated.

Loved this one, captured all the right elements. She is the center piece but the support crew are just as significant.

I do like the crop which emphasizes both the coming and going...

So very Garry Winogrand in the tilt and framing of this image of street people. The image itself impressive as a projection of Winogrand for the 21st century - could he have considered in his wildest imaginings that we might dress this way.

Lovely find. The crop and tilt might bother some but it adds to the mystery.

She looks so weary. Life lived too fast already.
