New York's Rat Race by CatchMe-22 New York's Rat Race by CatchMe-22
Step out of the rush
take a break from the rat race
breath
and open your eyes...

See the beauty that surrounds you
in the trees
in the trash
in the laughter of a child
or a demented hobo

Step back
and be entertained by
the madness we call life







Brooklyn Bridge
New York

Even if you win the rat race, you are still a rat.

Looks great.

Actually someone else said that, don't remember who.
Think you can see that quote in the coffee table book "Vertical NY".
I have the small version.

Funny title)))) I like this comparison about non-stopping cars and always-running rats.
And all the New-York series looks great, I' m truly delighted about it.

I think it means something along the lines of
"I love the title of the photograph,
excellent shot and very creative."

Personally I have to agree =D
