all good books go to LA & NYC

A couple of months ago I received some photo books containing Saul Leiter's works, Early Black and White and Early Color. Leiter, an American photographer and painter, earned his living as a fashion photographer in New York City. Apparently street photography was a hobby as many of his images are considered some of the finest examples of this genre in the world.

 

The title for this image is based on a nice letter I received from the shipper. Little did I know that he was here in Houston. He thanked me for my purchase and indicated that it "gets old shipping off all the good books to LA + NYC." I thought that was pretty cool.
