7mins with Shayna

so for the past few days i have been walking around the city shooting people. I like shooting in manhattan because I get so much energy and creativity from the strangers strolling the ave's and the ways. the city is a place where anything goes, there is not limit to what people wear and what represents their individual and visual expression. Today i was stalking people as i usually do and saw this girl................ I stole a photo of her unknowing and then she walked past me and i thought it would be cool to shoot her. she had an edge i liked. so i shouted after her and for a moment it seemed like she was ignoring my calls but then i realised she was listening to music. i ran up and tapped her on her shoulder, she turned to me with a smile as i stated that i was trying to get her attention. relying on instinct i asked her if we could do a quick shoooooot and she obliged. and so this is what i got out of a mere ------ 7mins
