Upper East and West Manhattan, New York

I was supposed to work in Harlem yesterday, but I never made it there. Instead I ended up working in Upper East and West Manhattan and actually I'm pretty happy about that, because I got to meet and photograph this guy: None other than The New York Times's legendary street fashion style photographer Bill Cunningham!

I first heard about Mr Cunningham about two years ago, when some of my friends recommended a documentary about this old guy who had been doing street style photography for years. I was instantly sold and what a feel-good documentary it was!

If you haven't seen the documentary about Bill Cunningham you are missing out, so do yourself that favour :-)

I was just walking up Madison Avenue in Manhattan, when I saw this group of people taking shots of these models posing in front of a shop, when I spotted Bill Cunningham. I couldn't believe my own eyes, so I rushed down there, just seconds before he turned his bike around and left. I only got to snap a picture of him once...lucky for me I just hit it with one shot!

One more thing that almost made me break my neck, was this adorable dog "Manny", who had to have her upper jaw removed because of cancer!

I really love the subways of New York! It makes your life easier to move around and there is almost always some sort of live entertainment!
