This is a casual portrait I took of the legendary street photographer Louis Mendes at the 2018 Coney Island Mermaid Parade. If you live in the NYC area you probably have met him. Thank you Louis for being a gentleman.

While attending the New York Unfiltered photo exhibition by our very own Martha Rohl I noticed this beautiful young woman sitting by the window where the light was perfect. I snapped this image through the plate glass window. When I showed her the image I also found out it was her birthday. Happy Birthday 😀
In street photography, we don’t wait for golden light. Mid-day will present a different set of circumstances. I love street portraits. I saw this girl on a NYC bench and she caught my attention. She smiles with her eyes, the shadow play from her lashes, one of my favorite street portraits.
