Walking to the Cinema (A Slideshow)



I saw several movies at the Tribeca Film Festival this week, and most every day, I walked from my apartment in the Village up Broadway and then east on E. 12th or E. 13th (by mistake, overshooting where I needed to turn) to the screenings at the Village East Cinema at E. 12th and 2nd Av. Then I would walk back west and north to a reception or an event near Union Square. I took this route, I think, ten times, and the images here don't even account for the stretch walking home.

These photos seem pedestrian to me, on many levels, but in their totality they represent the "shoe leather" transitions between the dramatic sequences in my own personal New York movie. What I think about most when I look at these walking pictures is how I use the occasion of walking to process what I've just experienced and how I need to think about it.

See my blog, Shoe Leather, at Reframe, for more on the films at the Tribeca Film Festival.

I visited this area on my trip to NYC last week, and have photo's also of the park, were going to explore more when we visit sometime this year.

Hi cayasm,
The streets you see here aren't usually the most photogenic, but there's always some intriguing details along humble byways that are easily overlooked.
