Manhattan ROCKS!

The City ROCKS!

In Manhattan you can go looking for interesting images, or you can sit at a table at De La Concha, smoke a cigar, and watch the folks coming out of the subway. These guys were happy to have their picture taken. I was happy to take it. They look like a bunch of really BAD guys, but they were nice, polite, cheerful. Probably originally from Des Moines.

how funny! i wonder if they go everywhere dressed up like that. :D

I got the impression that it was all just for show, and they were just starting out in the band business and were really enjoying all the attention they were getting. Three or four other people were taking pictures as I was.

20 years ago I wondered if I met those guys at Ischia. Today it's normal here, too. It's only an import-export's matter.

Maestro! Twenty years ago these guys were merely gleams in their parents' eyes. Just kids on a lark!

"Village People" meets the "East Side Kids!" Did you tell them where the picture was going to show up?

Heh. I just asked if I could photograph them and the leader--the one on the far right--said, "Oh, yeah, man. Go right ahead! And with just a little prompting they started the high-jinks.

Yes, an excellent little adventure...
