Papaya Dog

Papya Dog

Sometimes the best part of a visit isn’t the famous sights, but rather just soaking in the entire vibe of a city with people you care about. In September last year, I was in NYC with my parents and we were able to spend a full day wandering about the city. We saw and did a lot, but the walk uptown sticks in my head. The mood was good, we laughed a lot, and I turned and shot this picture.

At the moment it struck me as average, normal, mundane, but that is exactly why it caught my eye. I wanted to capture the real New York that is seen here. Parked cars slightly obstructing view, police barriers, people lingering on the streets, odd shops. I was really happy with the way this came out and glad the snapshot captures what I intended.
