The lucid eye

This picture is taken at the 42nd street in New York by Dutch photographer and cineast Johan van der Keuken (1938-2001 born and died in Amsterdam). While the photo is shot in New York it reminds me of Amsterdam: it is a sunny but windy winter day. The light is obviously strong – a sign of a sunny day. The coats these people are wearing show it is winter though. And the three heads down show that they are facing head wind. In sum, this photo is a not uncommon picture in Amsterdam as well.
