Legendary New York Time’s Fashion Photographer Bill Cunningham died this week. The Washington Post called him the modern era’s original street style photographer. My own feeble attempt to try and capture someone in action on the streets of New York makes me appreciate how effortless he made his work appear. The other night walking home from the Met on 5th avenue I followed a few couples, all 70 and older in their stylish clothes, 2 of the couples hand in hand making me wonder and curious while filling in the blanks in my mind of how they’ve been able to keep their relationships so strong.  Were these second marriages?  Was it the obvious wealth they had that freed them from the day to day stress most of my friends and I have in our lives.  Was it making sure they took this time every week to be together? Was it that at their age they could stop and really appreciate and enjoy their lives without the care of kids, school and work? I guess if I hadn’t been daydreaming so much I might have grabbed my phone to capture a picture quicker.  When I decided to turn back the others were gone and these two with their woven hats were already getting into a taxi they had flagged down.

Stripes

This summer the trend seems to be stripes, and in this post I pay homage to Bill Cunningham. I found trying to snap pictures of New Yorkers, who always seem to be in a  hurry – not easy. The fact that he’s still doing this in his 80s on a bicycle is truly amazing.IMG_1183

…and here are a few pictures I took in the city on Wednesday when the temperatures had warmed up just a bit. I think it was in the 20’s.
