Bar Life, Chelsea Market – New York, New York

I seem to be attracted to bar scenes, especially the ones with a healthy interaction of people. In my mind, there’s a Hopper-esque feel. Though, looking at Edward Hopper’s famous Nighthawks painting, his masterwork looks nothing like my images. Still, I try.

Chelsea Market offered many bars to capture, for some reason, loaded with socializing New Yorkers. Coupled with renovated industrial architecture, it created an irresistible street photography opportunity.

I switched to the less imposing Fujifilm X100V, trying to blend in without looking professional with a big camera. On the other hand, maybe New Yorkers won’t care at all. But the holy grail of street photography is to capture without being seen.
