I recently stumbled across a great storyteller and photographer named Brandon who you might have seen his stuff with Humans of New York.  How inspiring.  He captures peoples' stories with their photographs.  He began with the goal of collecting 10, 000 photos of New Yorkers and it spiraled into a movement!  New York is one of my all-time favorite places with the most unique arrays of beautiful people.  Here are some of my favorites:::

 "Whenever I did a show in the park, Doris would come over and watch for a bit. Then one day, she came up to me, and without having ever spoken to me, handed me a clipping of an article that she’d found about me in The Villager. I thought that was the nicest thing. So I took a photo with her, printed it out, and gave it to her the next day. Then the NEXT day, she brings me ANOTHER set of articles about marionettes. At this point, I’d really started to fall for her. So I thought: ‘Doris keeps one-upping me. So I’ve got to do something really, really nice for her."

"If you’re opening a business just for the money, you’ll fail. There’s too much work before the money comes. Your heart needs to be in it."

    "I climbed a big cliff"                      "What are their superpowers?"
                                                          "This one can talk any enemy to death. 
                                                           And this one can knock her sister over."

 "Nobody wanted to come with me, so I came alone."

"Why are you wearing a pilot’s outfit?""I wear it every day.""Do you want to be a pilot when you grow up?""No, I want to be a teacher.""Why aren’t you wearing a teacher’s outfit?""I don’t have one."'

I love knowing people's stories.  Why are we all strangers?
