New York, New York

As many of you might know, New York City is not my favorite place in the world, but each time that I go there I find something new and different to appreciate. On this trip, myself and a couple of other photographers made time to go to the Cloisters which is uptown. We had good fortune to find Olga walking through the gardens, a nice young woman who was willing to let us take some pictures of her. What started as a "We love the sunlight on your hair, do you mind if we take some pictures of you", turned into a 4 hour modeling session. For someone who had never had her pictures taken like this, she did a great job. It turned out to be a fun day for all of us.
While taking the subway back downtown, towards Time Square, I couldn't resist this little boy who was asleep on his mother's leg. I asked permission (of course) and took some pictures of him which I later emailed to his mother. Kids are so darned cute when they are sleeping.

And then, as I always do, I made sure to get a couple good night shots. New York City is a great place for these shots since the city is full of color, lights and lots of movement.
