Casual Portrait

90th St and Central Park West, New York

As I was walking to the subway, I came upon this woman, sitting on the fence around these flowers, smoking a cigarette and looking like she was waiting for her close-up. Naturally, I asked her if I could take her picture and after initially being somewhat taken aback, she agreed and provided this fine street portrait.


Brooklyn Bridge Park, New York

This picture doesn’t quite capture how bright and new the sneakers were but it was enough to make me turn back and ask to take a picture. the woman was at first reluctant to be in it, but was persuaded fairly easily when I said the picture would be better with two people in it. Used my flip out screen for this one, crouched down low to get the shoes and the couple’s faces.
