Photo Finish

Action Photo

You may find this hard to believe, but these tourists were moving so fast, were such a blur of velocity in carting their Times Square tchotchkes back to the Hotel Pennsylvania, that my woman on the scene had to use a special FinishLynx high-speed camera (the same camera used at the Olympics) in order to photograph this pair.

    Notice the bright white “walking shoes” – you know those babies just had about .6 miles of total ambulation on them before the big vacay.

    Thank you for using a Tourist Term. And for introducing me to the word “ambulation.” NICE!

    This is slightly off topic, but I have to say I am completely baffled by the athletic wear and shoe industry. I work in the fashion industry (Empire State Building- tourist central), and so have seen a lot of ugly shit, but nothing as ugly as what comes out of Nike, or New Balance, etc. Are the shoe designers blind, or just insane?

  4. Aaron Goldfarb Says:

    Stephanie my dear, I weep for you having to actually work in a building that tourists fucking pay money to go to the top of and recreate “An Affair to Remember” fatso edition.

    I sometimes think shoe designers try to make shoes as ugly and “flashy” as possibly.

    Steph – no kidding… as an avid runner I am floored at the lack of tasteful shoe options on the market. i finally got over it as i found the shoe of my dreams and ONLY wear it at the gym, not with my jeans on a stroll through midtown like these fine ladies. However, could i not just as easily run my miles in something accented in colors that I could actually find in my wardrobe, instead of varying degrees of neons?

    Imagine how much faster she would have been, had you rolled her on her belly

    THANK YOOO STEPHANIE! Some of those shoes are enough to make your eyes bleed!
    So uh… not to sound like a moron or anything… but when I bring MYSELF to NYC- does anyone care if I ambulate in my thrashed riding boots?
    They’ve seen thousands of miles of SF city streets.

    Mr A- I have to tell you I seriously panicked when I saw
    “Photo Finish” my heart sank at the thought this was the end of your photo journal…
    Thankfully- I was WRONG.
