  • i took this picture, shooting from the hip while waiting for the subway at 8th and Broadway. it perfectly encapsulates what i loved about living in new york city.

    people from all walks of life, at various stages of their lives are tossed together, forced to live among one another like a huge petri dish. everyone just trying to survive in their own way.

    living in this city taught me so much about acceptance, culture, and the true meaning of neighbor. i wouldn't trade this experience for anything in the world.
