SUN in Times Square:
Before going up to Columbia to draw, I stopped by Times Square to wander the the side streets. Getting off at 42nd - to see the whole space filled w/ sunlight - finally. With the sun at my back I walked to the side streets - 44th, 45th and 46th Sts. They were all shade and walking out of the shadows of 46th onto Broadway was a great feeling - I immediately looked up - and there was the sun - exactly as Katherine’s shadow study. It was about 1PM for the 1st photo. I walked east of 7th and then back to 46th trying to find the same spot for more photos of the sun. 2nd photo is at 1:15 and the 3rd about 1:25……. At 1:10 the southern block of the corridor - 44-45 was back in shadow with the TKTS stairs still in sun and everyone enjoying. I would have loved to stay and find out how long it took for the stairs to return to shadow but alas my sections were calling!
