On 89th Street

After the talk on Lisette Model, I felt Larry Fink and the other speakers had sent me out into the world with a single idea: carrying a camera is about seeing the world and experiencing it.

On 89th I found a toilet discarded onto the curb, pulled my pocket camera out and took a few photographs. A woman walking past asked "Are you a photographer for Time Out New York?"

I said no. But there's a toilet, I told her. And I have a camera. You can't go wrong.

The woman's comment about Time Out [New York] may have been an underhanded joke, just like my word choice.

Indeed, you can't go wrong.

Well, she did seem flushed with excitement.
