Albion Books, Frontal View

Thank you for the encouraging complements about my photo and sketch of the book kiosk at Central Park in New York City in yesterday’s post.  Today I would like to add some context to that scene by revealing another shot I took that day.

My sketch is not as dark in mood as the photograph, but it contains the same elements. It also explains the limitations I faced when I tried to frame yesterday’s photo (the one of the colorful Angels-Killing-Dragons poster or perhaps it was the Angels-Taking-Their-Dragons-for-a-Walk-on-their-Leashes poster).  I could not get back far enough to frame the picture to my liking because the second pillar supporting the street light behind me got I’m my way.

It is always a good idea to get more than one view of a subject.
