45th Street & Broadway Avenue

This building is located on Broadway Avenue between 45th and 44th Street, right in the middle of Times Square. I was standing across the street in front of ABC-TV's studio when I looked up and saw the clock face on the top. I quickly took a few photos and moved on. It was only when I got home that I realized the colors in this photo are quite amazing.

So what is your favorite color?

And I'm sure you know the different colors are created by different types of light sources ... fluorescent and tungsten being the predominant ones in this image ...

Red and Yellow :)

Reminds be of the building at the end of Ghostbusters, just before the Marsh Mallow man appears.

I have got to come to NYC, your photos are really making me miss the place.

You must, must remove "Avenue" from the title and the opening sentence of the post.
Other than that, this is one of the most magnificent and powerful photographs you have published!

Awesome photo, Ming.

Green, the darker shades.

The building originally housed the Paramount Theatre where Frank Sinatra appeared in the 1940's. It is my favorite building in Times Square. It plays "Give my Regards to Broadway" for the incoming theatre crowd. Thanks for the beautiful photo, Ming.

First, I like this shot because of your angle and also because of the colors.

Funny enough, everyone thinks purple is my favorite color because I used it in my store a lot. It's NOT. I lean more toward aqua, although I don't use it in decorating or anything. Weird, huh?

laila said...

oh wow! great angle, it looks like you lie on the floor to take this photo, i feel like walking on this building.

my fav color has always been green, until the recent yrs when i started liking soft pastels and bright colors (ie yellow). yeah they're like 2 ends of the extreme, but green will always hold a special place in my heart (and i noticed u took a pic of green M&Ms "statues" below! :>)
