Thanks for the memory by Janice Filkins

I do not know the man in the photo. The photo was taken while I was attending school in Manhattan. One of my fellow students and I wandered the streets with our cameras during lunch breaks, looking for that magical moment to capture on film. (Yes we used film in those days). Anyway, I came across this picture today and I remembered the minute I shared with him. He saw the camera in my hand and said," take my picture girly". I think I replied something like, "I am looking for something memorable to shoot". He immediately took the cigerette from his mouth and put it in his ear. Many years later, I look at this photo and realize how "memorable" it is. All those small everyday interactions with each other that enrich our lives. Anyway thanks for reading!
