Overthrow Boxing Club

Overthrow Boxing Club

This is the exterior of the Overthrow Boxing Club, on Bleecker Street in NoHo, New York City, in late afternoon.  I was taken with the explosion of colors and graffiti, and how the light fell, particularly through the fire escape, but also to the door on the right — it looks like the light could be shining out instead of in.  This is made even more ambiguous by reflected light (from the display window) interrupting the shadow line.
