This was a fun portrait session on the east side of Manhattan with one of my brother’s friends. He’d just returned from six months in Colombia and needed some portraits. I had recently decided to shoot only film and wanted to shoot a few rolls of film. I also decided to get experimental with one of my Lensbaby Lenses. I’ve had these since around 2005 and still use them today! They’re great for portrait photography, landscapes, even still life or street photography. Such cool little alternative lenses. In case the area with the flags looks familiar, we were just outside the UN at that point.
