The woman seems totally disinterested in the hot-dogs while the vendor seems to be totally disinterested in the woman or his business in front of the Whitney Museum on Madison Avenue in New York City.
Taken with my Olympus OM-2 an a 50mm f1.8 lens on Fuji Superia 400 film.

I still love shooting with my 35mm film cameras. Here is a shot from Rockefeller Center taken with my Olympus OM2-n and the Zuiko 40mm f2.0 lens on Ilford XP2-400 film. I think film still handles strong contrasts better than most digitals.
Heels and shopping bag on Madison Avenue, New York City. Black Friday is the Friday following Thanksgiving Day in the United States, which is the beginning of the traditional Christmas shopping season.
I took this with my Olympus OM-2n and the lightweight Zuiko 40mm f2.0 lens on Ilford XP2-400 film. The Zuiko 40mm is a perfect street photography lens with its near normal angle and compact size.
The OM-2n with a small and lightweight sharp Zuiko 40mm f2.0 pancake lens is a perfect street photographers tool. Here is a shot I took unobtrusively by pre-focusing and taking it without looking through the viewfinder. It takes a little practice to judge the right angle and I had to straighten it a little in Photoshop, but otherwise this is how it came out of the camera.

Olympus OM2, and Zuiko 24mm f2.8, on Ilford XP2-400 film. With all the convenience of digital photography I still find shooting with my old Olympus SLR a joy and the results are very satisfying. The 24mm Zuiko lens was perfect here to get the perspective I was looking for – an odd and whimsical juxtaposition of art and architecture.
