Photographing Times Square

Digital photography – like digital everything else – has made it easier than ever to take cool pictures. But it may  be harder to take cool pictures that someone else, or a dozen others, haven’t already taken. Especially in Times Square:

It’s a curious question: why take a picture of something that you, and everyone else, has seen dozens, if not hundreds of times? The only options for a successful a vacation photographer seem to be to a) put yourself – or mom, or a friend – in the photo, to give it some personal meaning or b) try to take a picture so unique it stands on its own.

For Times Square in 2010, I’d say Option B isn’t an option anymore.
