Portrait with Palm Tree and Birthday Cake

It’s astonishing what you can stumble upon on any given day in Red Hook. An essential part of street photography is just being in a place where you think interesting or startling things might happen. Then you walk a bit, wait, then walk a little further.

This anonymous lady appeared as I turned a corner. She will appear again as one of the works on paper being auctioned at the Kentler International Drawing Space Benefit May 12. Never know what else you might find there!
