The Red Stairs

This is a close up photo of the red stairs that was installed in the middle of Times Square above the new TKTS booths. The stairs are made of red plastic panels trimmed with metal strips and lighted from beneath. At night the structure looks like a glowing red wedge.

Notice the reflections on the plastic panels? The buildings in the reflections are some of the skyscrapers on Broadway and 45th Street. [N.B.: Excuse the quality of the photo. It was taken with my iPhone.]

So what is your favorite color?

Red & Pink are my favorites!
I was up in New York last Monday, and was actually headed toward the red steps to take a break, until I passed the lawn chairs in Times Square - it was so cool to be sitting in a lawn chair in the middle of the city shotting photos!
