I know I tend to be drawn to photographs that reflect photographer's consistent style.
This time it was the street photography by Simon Garnier that grabbed my heart. I love the way he depicts human in his stylish photographs. Sometime dramatic, sometime just calm and warm . . .
I found in his profile that his primary occupation is a scientist specialized in the study of collective behaviors. That makes sense :)

How to get to Brooklyn:
Brooklyn is easily accessible from Manhattan by subway, bus or ferry. Personally, I would choose to use ferry because it offers better opportunities for taking pictures.
Visit East River Ferry (www.nywaterway.com) for more information about ferry.
