Leopard Print


She had just left Harlem Hospital where she worked for many years. I was waiting for the bus right outside.

We engaged in a small conversation and she allowed me to take her picture.

She gave me her name and phone number and asked me to deliver it to the hospital (the worse part of taking photos of people)….what’s even more terrible is I lost her number and forgot her name!



Like many of the people I took photos of today, I took a picture of Keith while I was at church, during the bake/ dinner sale.

I think his jean vest is awesome (look at the next blog post to see a close up of it).

Actually, I didn’t even know that jean vest were in this season until one of the little boys in my church ask me to get him one as a birthday gift. That’s when I realized that a lot of people are wearing them. (A lot of men not little boys are wearing them, I think the kid in my church is ahead of his times). The kid in my church even told me how he was going to wear it- with buttons and other accessories. I hope he keeps dreaming about it because I can’t even find denim vest for kids his age. He’s 12 now. (Help!)

The Beetle Volkswagen 1972

I think this is my third time taking a photo of a Yellow Beetle this year.

I don’t know, every time I see one I put the camera to my face. This time, I caught one with the owner.

I saw this car from afar and sped up to take photos of it. It was surrounded by men speaking in Spanish. I didn’t know whose car it was. I thought it was one of the men until a lady came out of the store. She proudly walked to the car and opened the doors.

She was even prouder when I asked if I could photograph it! Then she turn to leave but I notice the hood was still open and when I mentioned it, she then told me her husband was standing there.

And all that time I though she was one of those single ladies doing her thang!  I think she would have never mentioned the man…

Doesn’t she look proud?
