An attorney is interviewed on the Superior Court steps in New York City. I just held my camera up high, unfortuantely I just had a 24mm with me but it was better than nothing. I used the boom mics. as lead-inlines to the attorney. I really enjoy this photo because no matter how many people you have your eye goes right to him being the center of attention. This has a more newsier feel shot in black and white as opposed to color.

    One of the best photographs I've seen on jpg. You've captured the tension superbly. I also like the two citizens far left - too young to appreciate the vibe. Brilliant and the 24 works handsomely.

    This shot wouldn't have nearly the impact if you had a longer lens. The 24mm was PERFECT! He's like the hub in a wheel. Incredible image. "Yeah!" R

    I've been in these scrums before with a camera, not very pleasant. This certainly captures the unpleasantness of it all Michael!

    From some of the hairstyles and the film cameras I'd guess somewhere between 1975-1985?
