Washington Square Park People

The following photos are some taken in Washington Square Park on my trip to NYC in June. These are just a few of the many interesting people I saw there that afternoon.

I was asking a lady about her antique camera when my daughter walked up and stood beside me. She asked, “Do you know her?” I replied, “Yes, this is my daughter.” She said, “I just photographed her over there,” as she points to the place. Amy Touchette is a New York City artist and has a series called New York Young which is photos of teens around the city.

Amy seemed surprised when I asked to photograph her with the girls. She replied, “Oh, I’m not used to being asked to have my photo taken, it is always me doing the asking.”
