Roving Rube

October 5, 2003

Street Vendor and Umbrella, Times Square

What's New

The Rube has spent some time just standing around Times Square, gathering pictures for this series. The sun is very intense, reflected back up off the pavement, and from the steel and glass buildings. And there is the constant roar of the traffic, the air conditioners, the big generator buried under the center of the Square -- it comes to sound very much like the roar of the ocean.

Sometimes the vendors are lulled to sleep.

This page requires a 6.0+ browser for the pictures/text to display correctly. If you have an older version of Netscape, Explorer, or AOL, the text will appear cut off and the pictures distorted.

Site Tips: If you have Explorer or AOL (recent version), and a mouse with a scroll wheel, you should be able to move the mouse anywhere over the text at right and scroll it with the wheel, so you can still see the picture while reading.

Most of the pages have a large version of the main picture which you can make your wallpaper by first clicking on it to download, then right-clicking and choosing "Set as Background".
