  • I'm walking towards Central Park. I've just said goodbye to a stranger named Joan, who was originally from Colombia and had given me travel tips for New York City. "Don't be too friendly.", "Keep your camera inside a bag. Try and get a plastic bag.", and some stories that were a little terrifying.

    I stop for this beautiful camera. It just so happens that the individuals using it were also beautiful.

    We talked about the beauty (and frustration) of using film. About photography, New York and happiness.
