New York City Street

This is my attempt at the current DSDF challenge. I cannot remember doing a street scene before this. I have only been to NYC once and that was way back in the summer of 1981, when I went to visit my sister Barbara who lived in Manhattan. To help get a feeling of tall buildings I chose a 6x12 canvas. Then just started sketching and found that getting the perspective right was really hard for me. Then the photo was just too busy so I simplified. I am pleased with the outcome though.
