Alyssa was standing there - as i walked by I could not resist this serendipitous color match - I did happen to have my camera with me so I just asked - she didn't mind at all, and resumed listening to her iPod while posing. Barely had time for a few shots before the train pulled in. In restrospect I like how the tattoos add a focus of interest - it all happened so fast, had I thought about it I would have tried to get a close up of these. The passers by were quite amused, some were shocked - too bad I couldn't document them too. View On Black

Alyssa etait la. En la passant je n'ai pas pu resister cette harmonie accidentelle des couleurs - et comme j'avais mon appareil, je lui ai simplement demande si je pouvais prendre cette photo - c'etait tout a fait OK, elle m'a assure, et elle s'est remise a ecouter son iPod tout en posant.
