I took this on the corner of Varick and Spring St. in Soho (you can see City Winery in the background through the break in the steam). I loved the steam pouring out onto the wet street, and how the car headlights looked as they plowed through it. I was pointing my camera to take the shot when suddenly the doorman from the hotel on the corner walked right in front of me to hail a cab. I kept waiting for him to move, but he wouldn't, so I just took the picture anyway. The guy on the bike and the woman with the blue umbrella were happy accidents.

I still get lost in the West Village, all the time. The streets are laid out in a grid, basically, only they seem to be at about four different angles and all smashed together. I kind of like the way that the Avenues, honey badger-like, just barrel straight through on their way regardless, making all these distinctly-NYC wedge-shaped buildings that I like so much. I am standing at Perry St. at the same time looking up both Waverly and 7th Ave., one light, one dark.
