My Favorite NYC Photo

On Saturday, fourteen of us cabbed to John's Pizzeria for the most incredible New York pizza.  I'm still having visions of pizza dancing in my head.  (My visions might make me drool just a little bit, but I didn't just say type admit that.)

On the way to John's, I sat up front with the cabbie.

He scared me.

At first.

And then?

He didn't.

His initial gruffness turned to cautious friendliness, followed by outright delight.

His name is Spiro. 

This photo of Spiro is my favorite photo out of the zillions I took during my six days in NYC.

Everything about it says "New York" to me.

Thank you Spiro, so much, for allowing me to photograph you!

    OMG…that is a great photo and I totally get why it’s your favorite! By the way, I loved the pink dress. You looked spectacular.

    I totally love his face. You can see the gruffness, but you can also see a tremendous softness too. He looks like a sweet man. Just don’t tell Spiro I said that. It might ruin his rep.

    He looks like a honey bun. As long as you didn’t flash him I’m sure he would be harmless.
    (you didn’t flash him….. right?)
