Cross Roads of America

I don’t go to Times Square very often, so when I do it is really a thrill. I completely understand why a photographer would spend their whole working life there.

Why is the Swatch woman scowling? Did she want Cartier and feels cheated?

Here is a before-and-after:

The photo below is June, 2011

The one below below is taken in 1989 or thereabouts.

JVC has staying power clearly. They tarted up the signage a bit though. The 3D movie poster that is being put up was not actually for a real movie. It was for a movie-in-a-movie. They were putting it up just for background for a shot in the real movie. Can you imagine? Can you spell CGI?  That was then, this is now. It is Michael J. Fox, by the way. Apparently the real movie was a dog.

Oh yeah....tourists. Always. Thank God for tourists.

And the Naked Cowboy....

Yeah he is in there. Click on the pic for a better view.
