I was walking home from the barbershop today and as I strolled past Morningside Park I came across the women in the picture above. Something compelled me to capture the moment.
The image of them sitting together reading, yet seemingly oblivious to each other’s presence struck me. I would put my life savings on the fact that they know one another, but one can only assume from the image.
To me the sight was a beautiful one. In the midst of the hustle and bustle of Uptown Harlem New York you can still find sights of calm and tranquillity.
I want this as a painting!
