#460 Mike Nouveau, Noir Rain and Mike Parle on Mott St, NoHo, New York.

Rain(center) is visiting NY from Hong Kong, and I walked with her in SoHo to meet Mike(left).
On the way to meet him, I found a guy(right) on the street and asked him "Can I take photo of you for my blog?" as usual, and he said "Yes."
I asked his name, and he answered "I'm Mike!"
I said "Mike?? We have a friend named Mike and gonna meet him from now!" and he said "Wow, I'm waiting for him too!"

I and Rain didn't know Mike before(he is visiting here from Melbourne), but we connected each other naturally.
People usually say this things "such a small world", but actually I trust we could encounter people naturally if we have something in common.

I photographed this after we all got together.

#459 Louise Du Toit at Brooklyn Bridge Park Pier5, Brooklyn, New York.

At the event of Adidas Fanatic at Brooklyn Bridge Park, I found Louise from Acne Studios team.
Her last photos are here. →  #365 Louise Du Toit on Mulberry St, Nolita, New York.

Even though she is in a soccer uniform, I like how she style herself with scarf on her head and shades.
We had so much fun then with great summer weather!

#458 Svea Berlie on Prince St, SoHo, New York.

The model with style.
"Models look nice and dress well because they are models" I think it's like one of general ideas about models.
Is she cool because she is a model?? I say "No."
I photographed her because I could see she has a style.
For me, most likely she is a girl who likes fashion and does modeling but not just a model girl.
I like people who likes fashion or has own styles, and I don't care what people do, age, gender and figure.

She said she is 19 years old.
Too young to be dignified.
I meant that is in a good way, of course.

#457 Ginger Jones on Mercer St, SoHo, New York.

Time flies so fast, and it's already end of June.

The moment of summer sunset hour in SoHo.
Liked his eyes and jet-black ink on left foot.

#456 Kris Van Assche on Greene St, SoHo, New York.

Creative derector Kris Van Assche after Dior Homme 2014AW preview event at SoHo boutique.
The biggest mission of the day for me was to shoot him at Dior Homme Autumn 2014 collection preview.
As you know, he is the creative director of Dior Homme and his own label Kris Van Assche.
