Times Square in New York City is the ultimate tourist attraction. Times Square is constantly jam packed with tourists and, if you time it right, the naked cowboy could be there. I have never been fortunate enough to see him but if you go during the day, I'm sure you might see him with his signature cowboy hat, underpants, guitar and not much more.

The best time to see Times Square is at night when all of the lights are gleaming. The lights are so bright that photography without flash is possible all day long. In order not to get the same old shots that everybody gets, it is best just to shoot from the hip at all times. That way you get slightly oddly composed pics, which actually gives them the
atmosphere of the place and look exactly like your memories of the place. It may sound strange but the pics tend to look best when slightly out of focus as the lights seem more magical and give you that dizzy feeling like you are really there. Although New Yorkers may balk at the thought of hanging about in Times Square, if you are a visitor, you have to spend some time there as there is no place like it.
