Duelling Photographers

I was walking across St. Mark's Place yesterday, when I passed by a photographer. There's nothing unusual about that! He was talking on the phone to someone, saying he was working on a project in New York, blah blah blah. Nothing unusual about that either!

Regular readers of this blog know that I have to take pictures of other photographers, so I did!


A photographer.

I tried to pretend I hadn't just taken his picture, by fiddling with my phone-camera, but photographers have a sharp eye, and he was not to be fooled! While I was fiddling with the buttons on my phone, he sidled along to my left and took a picture of me!

But photographers have a sharp eye, and I knew what he was doing, so I looked up and grinned just as he snapped his picture!

"Nice phone case!" he said, before we parted.

"Thanks!" I said.

Photographers are very congenial… in the East Village Today!

  1. do you know on which blog will the photo of your phone case show up?


    1. I"m not sure it will be on a blog — it'll probably be in a coffee table book, sold at MoMA!
