Woman with Red Hair in Union Square

Posted by alifeinthecity on July 22, 2011

21 July 2011// Union Square     CMQ_9470

Could not resist the red hair…when I caught her eye, she nodded permission…she seemed slightly amused by the whole thing….something about her reminds me of Lord of the Rings…a slight hobbit air about her….

Konstantin Bokov

3 April 2011//Soho

Konstantin Bokov flagged me down as I was walking by…had a nice chat with him…he came from the Ukraine and made a living by painting murals…

He took me to this little deli and posed in front of this mural he had painted….he was very insistent on me taking his picture…a few weeks ago I walked past the deli…all boarded up and looks like it’s ready for demolition…I guess that is why he wanted a record of it….soon it will be  another condo….
