Conversation, NYC, 1970

I was trying out a new camera, at age 19.

    Isn't this a scene from "The Graduate"? That looks like Dustin Hoffman and Mrs. Robinson!

    So that was how the world looked like when I was born :)

    The picture is great - the lights, the warm tones, the compositon - and just the right moment with the perfect expressions on the conversationists faces.

    Caitlin Bevan Hi Caitlin, you are welcome to use this shot. Even in its "Original" size on Flickr, it's pretty low res... can I email you a higher-res version tomorrow?
