Captured amidst a torrential downpour, this photograph has secured a cherished spot among my favorites. Taken right after the bustling rush hour in Times Square, I stumbled upon a poignant display of patriotism. In the heart of this metropolis that never rests, I chose to maintain the backdrop of the people, embracing the city's ceaseless movement. The neon lights of the armed forces recruiting center cast a luminous reflection of the Stars and Stripes, crafting a poignant tribute that echoes through the rain-soaked streets of Times Square, NYC.
