New York streets are stocked with food carts. But have you looked at the food? Like, really looked at the food? Here are some close-ups of various NYC street foods, taken with my DSLR hacked with a Pentax 25mm 1.4 TV lens usually used for 1″ CCTV security cameras. Bon appétit. Check back every Friday for a new photo essay.

See the photos in the gallery above.
