Searching for Destiny by Jose Juniel Rivera-Negron

In Times Square, New York life life is very busy. People walking back and forth all day, even the street vendors. As soon as I saw this man pulling his food cart I saw the perfect composition. I shot it from eye-level; it was noon and in May it’s still fresh out so it was perfect. It looked like he was searching for a spot to park his cart to start his day. That’s why I named it “Searching For Destiny”.
