View down 7th avenue at Christopher, circa early 70s.
And my pic taken today. I can in no way match the beauty of shot 1, I think it was taken with a 50mm lens; I am using wide angle 10-22. Plus, color of shot 1 gorgeous, perhaps its the light (cloudy day?) or the nature of film vs digital. But you can see that not much has changed on this one corner of the Village, unlike the rest of our town. A Trump black hole rises in the background in my shot, the old pic shows the inlaid brick of the street which has now been paved over.
