This image is very special to me.  I took it while walking the streets shooting with Steve McCurry, one of my photography heroes.  It was such a rush to capture a good image and then discuss it with him, actually you can see some of this on the episode I did with Steve for my AOL web series.

    I don’t even know why the combination of prints works so well, but it does, and I want her to teach me her secrets!

    I love how she holds her hands, her whole body seams to be aware of something interesting, really wonder, what she’s looking at?!

      I agree, and I love the way you phrased this.
      I also love the mix of plaids in her outfit–that’s hard to do well!

    Me encantan las telas de cuadros ,pero lo que realmente me fascina es la capacidad de adaptación al andamio ,parece que estuviera pensado para el descanso con sitio incluso para
    apoyar los pies.

    What I love most about this image (and it’s quite small, so hopefully I’m not seeing things!) is the spot of bright blue on her thumbnail with the red section on her pen, and the way that together they mirror the colours of the two plaids. Brilliant!

    You should absolutely be so proud of this photo. (Although that may not mean much coming from little ‘ol me). It looks amazing.

    I was so distracted by the beauty of her patterns on patterns as well as the ominous lighting in this shot that I didn’t realize she was sitting on construction equipment.

    My favorite thing about New Yorkers is that they are willing to sit on anything.

    This is a great photo and beautiful clothing as well. Love the pattern on the collared, button-up classic shirt. This is a wonderful image to capture!

    I really loved the video you linked to with this post. Photography, like writing, is something that requires a lot of practice and time to do really well. And like everything else, the more you do it, the more you realize how much you don’t know.

    I love the way both you and Steve Curry explain your intentions when you go to take a photograph. That’s one of the things that makes your work and his work art.

    I write a Talking Art column for an online literary magazine and would love to interview you about your work.
