My trip to New York was so much fun! I ran into a very generous man, Louis Mendes as he was photographing people outside of my hotel, he was using my favorite old 4×5 camera, the Speed Graphic. It was later after I left him that I realized that I had met him before, maybe 27 years ago, when I was photographing at the Jacob Javits Center, using in-camera selective diffusion techniques! I can’t wait to send him this early (a little damaged) polaroid along with the quick digital pict I took of him a few days ago.
Another nice moment came when the famous German Shepard named Rumor, and her human escorts came to stay at that very same hotel, The New Yorker. She won Best in Show at Westminster. What a beauty! More to come.
