“Want a balloon?”
This is part 2 of my New York City 2017 photo series.
Greenwich Village, NYC, USA. October 2017. (19 photos)
Twenty years ago, I was walking along this street in Chicago when I saw a television crew surrounding this very well dressed woman. She looked important, tossing her hat in the air, as if for some television commercial. I remember having to step around the pavement to get around her and the crew. I spent a few minutes watching the scene and then I took a photo because, I was a tourist and I had a camera with me. I had no idea who she was. It wasn’t until later, back in Australia, that someone looking at my photos told me that this woman was Oprah and had a somewhat popular television show. O! 🙂
In 1998 I spent some time studying and working in Boston. I had a Pentax film camera in those days. I am trying to digitise all my negatives currently. If I find any nice ones, I’ll post them here, just for a bit of variety. I’m not sure how often this will happen. By the way I was hopeless at labelling and archiving my negatives. 🙂
