NYC Mellow Yellow

Susan is a big fan of Bill Cunningham's On The Street but fashion photography isn't very high up on her Top Ten List. So she picked a color -- yellow -- as we headed out to museums. Taxis did not count.

She quickly realized that taking pictures while you walk toward people walking toward you was difficult unless you like blurry pictures. She also realized that leaving the camera on all the time ran the battery down a lot faster than she liked. And the battery would die exactly when the perfect shot appeared.

My trek through the city that day was accompanied by my intrepid photographer muttering "Yellow, yellow, yellow...."

What a great idea! That yellow bag sure gets around. It's funny, when I think New York I think yellow. It must be because of the yellow cabs.
