On a pevious post you'll remember Joseph Holmes capturing these taxis lined up along West Forty-third Street in New York. This time, Holmes found a lone woman in a yellow dress walking along West Nineteenth Street. The following quote is him describing his fortune in capturing this photo,"One day the woman in the yellow dress steps into my frame to humble me and remind me that all I can do is accept the gift when it's offered."

When someone says Las Vegas, you more than likely think of the glitz and the glamour: bright lights, shows and over the top displays. This series by Jean-François Thériault avoids those clichés and shows you an entirely different side of Sin City, which is exactly what makes it beautiful. He makes Vegas feel more like an abandoned town than a tourist attraction through his use of desaturated colors and select subject matter.
If you haven't seen Nuit Blanche before, you are in for a treat. This amazing short story explores a fleeting moment between two strangers. I highly suggest watching both the film and making of, to truly see what went into making this film.
