Photography: The Black and White Project Revisited, Day 16: April 14, 2016
Since starting a job in the SoHo section of Manhattan last week, one of the most enjoyable things has been taking a walk down to Washington Square Park to people watch, to shoot and to just decompress a bit after long days in the office.

(Photo Caption: Over the past couple of years, there has been an increasing trend of artists turning old dumpsters into canvases for their art. I can’t say that I know if they’ve gotten someone’s permission to do this — or like the graffiti writers of the 80s, just did their thing without caring if anyone gave them permission or not. In any case, I came across these by these two dumpsters by what I still refer to as NYU‘s Main Building. And while both caught my eye, there was something about Chris Veng’s Robots Will Kill that screamed at me “You must take this one.”)
