Meeting Clifford Owens
It's not everyday that you bump into a well-known creative.
He was waiting at the corner to cross the street in midtown Manhattan. As I approached to do the same, I spotted the Leica. Curiosity seeker that I am, I struck up a conversation.
I had a feeling he was well-known so I asked him. He smiled, and told me his name. Next question - of course- "may I have the pleasure, sir, of capturing your image?" He smiled again and nodded. It was the golden hour, and so I asked him to help me find the perfect light. He obliged. We walked and talked for a couple of blocks, and I left smiling for it was truly my lucky day.
