Hell's Kitchen, October 2006
I was walking through the Hell's Kitchen Flea Market, off Ninth Avenue at 39th Street, when I saw a vendor selling these metal stars. I loved the colors and the way they'd been arranged. But I didn't want to just walk right up and start snapping pictures of her stuff, so I browsed around and bought a couple of old postcards for $2. Then, having ingratiated myself, I asked if I could take a photo. She said, "Sure!"
I probably could have taken it for free, but hey, I got some great postcards and a cool photo, and she got some dough. So everyone's happy!
