The old men of New York
• The old New York
After I made a picture of her, it is her cheek for a kiss.
After the kiss, she said, "Is not love wonderful?"
"Yes it is," - I replied.
Then she leaned over and said: "But sex is better."
The "Fotoperepis New York" street photographer Brandon Stanton commented photographer.
I love when people understand the style of their age, rather than hide it. Whether it's gray hair, or a cane, or glasses has advantages associated with having the experience. They should be worn as a medal.
I love in her hair and a shawl. Fortunately, the wind made them focus.
"Put me on the Internet! Even on the Google!"
It was so great for me. Yesterday I had the honor of being photographed by master photographer Jill Enfield. It uses the same method that was used to make portraits of soldiers still in the civil war. This process is called wet collodion, and is to carry a portable darkroom.
After the shot, Gill instantly uses a special blend of chemicals to transfer photos to a piece of glass.
Recently, she has used this technique in a series of portraits of the new immigrants who have recently immigrated to the United States.
She explains: "With this method, I can show that they are no less brave than those who sailed in boats 150 years ago."
Because of my tendency to ask people to sit on the street, I had a unique experience: to shout at his mother Alec Baldwin (left). Which, by the way, gave me the opportunity to look at the interest in the life of Alec Baldwin. This is Elaine Stritch, Broadway legend, who plays the mother of Alec Baldwin. 30 Rock.
I came across a national treasure yesterday. I walked along 3rd Avenue, when he saw an old man in a wheelchair. Pushed his guardians. Despite his physical condition, he was dressed very provocatively. It was a bizarre yellow suit. Everything about him was yellow, even shades of his socks. Intrigued by his appearance, I leaned over and asked to take a picture. He silently nodded. After I took a picture of him, his caretaker formally introduced, "This is Banana George", the oldest barefoot waterskier world. He is now 97.
When he was 92, he set a world record as the oldest man waterskiing barefoot "
Banana George did not even know how to water ski until you turned 40. But soon it became his passion as he did a show in Cypress Gardens. Jumping and riding on the shoulders of women. During his career, he broke the spine 4 times. He also broke his ankle, knee, and eleven ribs. I saw the footage, like a very old George pulled through the water in a wheelchair-to-country skiing, and he was smiling like crazy.

"Just take a picture of the bag. This is the best part."
"Oh, come on."
"Okay, but not too close!"
"I am a widow for five years. And I have to look out for people looking at me, the way I dress to pick up somebody. I would like to meet someone, but I'm not going to do anything for this"
I first met this woman on Cinco de Mayo. She sat alone in the loud and crowded Mexican restaurant, reading a book.
She was wearing a T-shirt with the inscription: "It's not the years in your life but the life in your years." I ran into her again yesterday. This time it was with an equally stunning message on her shirt
"I am a Catholic monk. I live a life of prayer"
"How about a cigarette?"
"Someone has to do the clouds."
"What do you like most about your wife?"

The meeting in Harlem.
Good news! All other mysteries of the universe have been resolved yesterday afternoon.
"Want to hear a crazy story? I went to the exhibition in the International Center of Photography, and saw his picture on the wall!"
"He injured his front leg."
I asked how they continue to love each other. And they answered as follows:
"She never forgets that she's my mother."
"And he never forgets that he is my son."
He tried to justify himself: "I am their grandchildren"
"When my husband died, I said:" Darling, how will I live without you? "
He said to me: "Take your love for me, and spread it around."
If this guy does not make you smile, I can not help you.
