fancy tights

Hi friends!

A few days ago this woman's legs caught my eye and I had to get a closer look. From afar, it looked like her legs were covered with tattoos. Upon closer inspection, I learned she was actually just wearing some "really fancy tights" (her words).

After helping her cross the street and chatting for few blocks, I worked up the courage to ask for a photo... She responded by hiking up her skirt and flashing a million dollar smile.

By the way - she's 81 years old! Can you believe it?!?

I love New York. I love fancy tights.

Just thought I'd share :)

Thank you so so much for your incredible support. I look forward to sharing updates soon. I'm off to shoot now!
