Late in October of 2011 I found myself in Times Square, New York early one morning after sleepless red eye flight. In the soft cold rain I looked down at my soaked shoes and this series was born. I found something surprisingly pure in this reflected color of bold blatant commercialism at this crossroads of the world. I have returned to New York at every opportunity and Las Vegas several times. No matter where I am, I find myself looking down and wishing for rain.
