Subject: [Leica] Times Square Part 2 - People

Wide angle lenses are cool (showing my age there).  These were all 
taken with a 15mm Heliar on an M7.  I like dramatic imagery of the 15 
and the way it can isolate people in even a crowded area like Times 
Square.  Even better, people just two feet away will look at you with 
your camera to your eye and decide you couldn't possibly be taking 
their picture.

All but two of these are full frame.  Two have been cropped to what I 
guess must be about 21mm focal length.  In some I've gone for an 
"all-alone-in-the-big-city" look, in another I was after a crowded 
look, in another I was just reporting what I saw.

Love 'em or hate 'em, here they are.  Comments encouraged.   Thanks.
