New York… W Mercer St

by Lee Oliveira on March 16, 2011

As I was walking the streets of Soho, I spotted this very smily man. Ernest sells beautiful hand painted prints along W Mercer St.

Ernest was such a delightful man to chat with.

He did ask me why I wanted to photograph him?… Do I still have to answer that question?! I will let my readers speak for me.

Thank you!

AMAZING color combination. I am so obsessed with brights these days. Just did a post on purple/red combination and absolutely love moving away from dark winter colors. Great shot and love the blurred out backgroud.

If I see him on the street, I’ll want to stop him and chat with him too! He looks like such a friendly, nice guy! I love that he’s not afraid to wear color and dress it up with a scarf! I think it’s really cool if random people on the street just stop and get to know each other. xoxoxoxoo

I love how much he seems to be enjoying his outfit! That’s my favorite kind of fashionista right there – the kind that just loves what they wear. Although, what do you call a male fashionista? A fashionisto??

xo, Ashley
