A: Do you know?

We met Vernon while hunting for a subject to photograph in a small 6th & B Garden in NYC. It wasn't long before he became every photographers muse and after obliging us one after one, I finally was able to strike up a conversation with him.

"I've been here 58 years. From the Virgin Islands. Things were different back then and a lot has changed. But, I come here every day to remember what it was like," His focused eyes reminiscing the days of his youth as a struggling worker, confirmed by his well experienced face.

Other of his peers shied away from the clicks of the intrusive black boxes. As we head out, I took a last glance back, his eyes fixed on us as he gave a tip on his hat like a perfect gentleman.
