For days I've been waiting for the right opportunity to make a photograph of this car.
It's been parked in the same spot on 46th Street for days now and every afternoon, I walk a few blocks to go see it, hoping that the spot in front of it is vacant. There's such a great contrast between the navy matte finish of the car as it sits against a wall of vibrant gold mums and I just wanted to try capturing it.
Today, I went out with my camera, hoping against all odds that the parking spot in front of it was open. Whaddaya know, it actually was!?! I was flipping out inside... after days of waiting, I could finally take a photo!
I pull out my camera and I'm walking closer and closer as I'm adjusting my settings and am suddenly mortified to notice another car creeping down the street in search of a parking spot....
I wasn't even there for 15 seconds before the stinking car had to ruin my photo shoot. I snapped this one just because I wanted some kind of record of it. [The left side's cropped slightly as to hide the other car backing in].
If tomorrow, I walk down the street, and the blue car is gone, at least I took one unsatisfying picture.
