Faces of NYC 1

Posted by Ruthiebear (Titusville, NJ, United States) on 18 March 2015 in People & Portrait.

As I have mentioned before I am not experienced or comfortable taking photos of people. On a day trip to New York City I tried my hand at some candid shots. For the next few days I will post some of them.
