Jardin des Tuileries, Paris | 19:32 I usually designate the more sartorial subjects (or editorial portraits) whom I photograph to render in AF, but this kid was really brilliant. I caught her after a long day of shooting, standing, waiting for her family to leave. I intercepted her at this spot and asked to take her photo.

I babble on about this dillemma in this post because when I look at these photos in this layout, I can honestly say my Minolta 58 produces some of…Continue Reading
I’m always running into street style photographer Younjun Koo around the city. Actually, I run into him no matter where I go.

The photos in the post were taken in London, Paris and New York.
