166. NEW YORK ON FOOT. Midtown Manhattan. Semiotics is the study of signs, and regarding photography a semiotician might say that a still image is in fact a moving image. There is a sequence the eye follows in a photograph as it moves left to right, up and down, guided by the content of the photo. This photo has three things going on and humourously comments on the constant collision of significations in this city. In other words, I thought it was funny.
