Floods in Hoboken by Brendan SmialowskiI had heard about the taxis, and it was certainly an image that illustrates the devastation of Hurricane Sandy within the New York area, because the yellow cab is so iconic. It was taken from a viaduct in Hoboken [New Jersey], a day or so after the hurricane passed through. The water level had receded. What you see is a very subtle mirror reflection of a beautiful puffy sky. I guess it’s a magnetic image: the beautiful immaculate new yellow cabs and this dark reflection. They are clear, bold colours – a contrast to the other pictures I had taken of mud and devastation.Photograph: Brendan Smialowski/AFP/Getty Images #
