I’ll remember the setting for this image for a long time! Doug Kaye and I were up in midtown and, after doing some fun shooting in Bryant Park, headed into the New York Public Library.
There’s a small cafe just off the main lobby of the library. We needed to rest our legs and drink some cool water to rejuvenate ourselves for more midtown walking. Just ahead of us – at a nearby table – was this young woman. She was patiently waiting – and watching – the comings and goings in the lobby.
We both tried shooting her – Doug from the side and me from behind. Once in a while she’d turn her head and I’d get lucky with a capture like this one. Why didn’t we talk to her?
