A Great Adventure

Every time I’m in a car I gaze out  the window looking for people to photograph. Oftentimes the most wonderful people pass by and I lament the fact that I didn’t happen to just run into them on the street. At least in these moments I get bursts of inspiration on the traffic filled streets. Yesterday I was driving through Hollywood and was about to change lanes when  out of the corner of my eye, I noticed this wonderful woman sitting at the bus stop. I quickly drove forward and made a u-turn in hopes that I would catch her before she caught her bus. I found a great parking place and ran across the street just in time to get the shot! To me this is the greatest adventure– to find someone  glorious and charming to share with the world.

  • Whew! So glad you parked! She is wonderful. I bet she has some good stories to tell and is a lot of fun, too.

  • I love how the seat ad refers.

    Hers is the best kind of suit.

  • Thank you for sharing a wonderful story. :o) She looks charming!

  • Love the various reds and the silver jewellery. The ad behind her is a humorous touch.

    She's fabulous and endearingly creative.

    -not related to this post, but DO YOU PLAN TO GO TO PARIS for the release of your book ?

  • Ari, I think part of your success is due to your openness to synchronicity and whatever the universe offers. A perfect example is that U turn and the perfect parking spot. You took it and you got your shot :-). Love your blog, always inspiring.

    Ari, I love the fact you hauled arse after her. You are adorable and I get it.

  • Go ahead with your adventure! Yours is the best adventure ever, in a world that, without you, would be hidden and unknown!
