New York rain. Romance on Doyers Street. Chinatown.Stolen moments are the sweetest moments. When the rest of the city has escaped for the day, the world melts away with a lingering kiss under an umbrella.
—-It’s really no secret that Doyers Street is one of my favorite streets in lower Manhattan. It’s an alley (or very narrow street) that is usually photographed from an entirely different angle. In fact, the fact that it has a sharp angle in it goes along with its colorful history. Its angle was known as “the Bloody Angle” for part of the 20th century due to gang violence.This is just around the bend from the more popular part of the angle and also across from one of my favorite noodle shops in Chinatown. I love moments like this that are so completely candid but somehow feel cinematic. I had just walked out from the above-mentioned noodle shop when I was met with this scene. It was too perfect to not quickly capture, of course.To all who celebrate Valentine’s Day and to all who do not celebrate - I wish you romantic moments like this one. ♥—-Taken with the Sony A55.

New York rain. Romance on Doyers Street. Chinatown.


Stolen moments are the sweetest moments.


When the rest of the city has escaped for the day, the world melts away with a lingering kiss under an umbrella.
