Charging The Street

'Charging' The Street

Arturo De Modica's giant bronze bull does not sit on Wall Street (little did I know!), but at a very prominent entrance point to NYC's Financial District. I was disappointed at not getting a shot without lots of tourists, so I thought I'd shoot him from behind, charging toward the towering halls of aggressive money management.

I promise this is the last monument/sculpture I have. The other two from my latest trip are here:

Canon EOS 5D
1/400s f/2.8 at 45.0mm iso100 full exif

other sizes: small medium original

Your POV makes it seem as if the bull is the great protector of "The Street"...a successful use of your surrounding elements!

I think the tourists add to the image,not distract...somehow,makes it more dynamic.
I like the man walking into the frame looking straight at the camera too.
Fantastic viewpoint,Jenene!

It would take an entire herd to make these towering halls to shake!
This statue is very convincing.

I love you pov on this! This is perfect and well thought out! Almost like they are going to run over the folks standing in front of them. Excellent work here! Big vote!

If it wasn't for those damn tourists with a camera (!) this would be so timeless. All those old buildings fading up to the sky like they would appear on vintage film give this a special feel which is enhanced by the inclusion of the cobble stones and the bald man in the three-piece suit.
