Still life with old man and young man

Saw this scene the other day before the Pride Parade here in NYC.
Been staring at it ever since. Wondering all sorts of things. Was he aware of the goings on? Does he comb his hair or brush it? What or to whom was he writing? Did he buy the bag himself or was it a gift?
How does this image make you feel? Or what does it make you feel?

A favor:
I don't do this often but if you have a few seconds, please vote for Grace, the daughter of one of my colleagues over at Burt's Bees. She is in the "B is for Beaming" category once you get there.

I swear this is exactly how I looked when I glanced in the mirror this morning. Need coffee. And a haircut. And 3 days to sleep. Oh well. Now off to a 7am meeting.

Quiang Liu rockin out on his Qinqin.

As I was watching Mr Liu, I reminisced about wanting to play the Banjo as a young boy. It might have been watching Roy Clark on Hee Haw while dreaming about Barbi Benton and Misty Rowe. Then went through a mental checklist of all the Banjo players I could name...Earl Scruggs, Béla Fleck, Steve Martin, Abigail Washburn, Grandpa Jones, Alison Brown, Noam Pikelny, Kermit the Frog...ummm. Yeah, that's all i got. Gonna be humming dueling banjos all day now. C'mon everybody strum along.

Some days we set out to remove the veil of ignorance.
Other days, we merely wrap it tighter to keep out the chill.

An inside joke for a guy I am genuinely proud to call a friend; wonderful educator and light-hearted photographer +Tony Corbell

Another day, another (anything but) quiet stroll around the city.

Yesterday was quite the day here in NYC.
It was a crazy day.
A joyous day.
A loud, colorful, glitter-filled day.
An "I do...you may now kiss the whatever" day.
An over-the-top, unforgettable day
It was a proud day.
And a truly historic day.

Story
Tagline
Passionate, award-winning photographer. Advertising Chief Creative Officer, too.
Introduction

I grew up on the creative side of the advertising world and had the pleasure of working with hundreds of clients around the world; telling their unique stories in very unique ways. Along the way, I've had the pleasure of working with an incredible number of talented photographers, directors, cinematographers and imagemakers. I became envious of their art and craft. At first, I saw it as a means of reducing my stress-filled life. As a Chief Creative Officer at the world's largest Advertising Agency Network, I needed a distraction. So I bought a camera. And then another. And another. My new hobby and daily "creative exercise regimen" quickly turned into a joy-filled and all consuming passion.

I love talking to all sorts of people and seem to have a knack for getting them to open up and share themselves despite the intrusion and intimidation that a serious-looking camera often represents.

I like seeking out and sharing things I find interesting. Beautiful things. Powerful things. Poignant things.

I am incredibly patient and am often rewarded with moments of magic.

I also enjoy taking something ordinary and making it something well beyond that. (To paraphrase Ansel Adams: "…making pictures, not just taking them.") Illustration and painting are other passions and I love creating unique photocompositions.

One thing led to another and now I'm published, in private collections and winning awards.

Happiness.

So now I have two jobs that I absolutely love. 

Alan Shapiro; Executive-Level Creative Guy and Very Passionate Photographer.
