As some of you probably know, one of my long term projects is to explore different areas and different streets in various cities and compare their character. I started this a while back in Germany when it was clear that I would be leaving Nürnberg for the US. I quickly became addicted to urban photography. While it seems so trivial and mundane at first, the different perspectives start to have a life on their own when considered in comparison with other neighborhoods.
Another aspect of urban photography that became clear to me when talking to other people is that it reveals a lot about your own perception, thinking, and cultural background. In fact the views, frames, and compositions that I chose are unique to my perception. Other photographers are likely to choose completely different ones. I choose what I like to emphasize. I emphasize what *I* feel is different from my expectations, which in turn are derived from previous experiences. This edition is about 14th Street. The area is depicted below:
Most of the shots were taken on my way from the tracks to the left, all the way down to Starbucks and all the way back to Atlantic station.
