This week I had the pleasure to find out a new page thanks to my sister, I had no idea of its existence, and I am kind of obsessed with it right now. The name is Humans of New York., is a great page where the guy takes pictures of people around NY and below there are little pieces of these people, like pieces of their soul.
I will tell you why I like it so much. First, Wao! New York has so many different people that is so shocking and yet amazing, I just love how different everyone is, and it not expected any less because is an island with 9 million habitants. I just think that what he does is great (is the greatest thing), and even though it might sound ridiculous to you, it isn't. He doesn't only take the picture, he takes the story which makes all the difference in the world, anyone can take a picture, not everyone can capture the essence of the moment, the feeling and most of all, the story. I admire that he takes the courage to ask strangers about their happiest or saddest moments.
They are the people of New York, each one with a personality: the extravagant guy/girl, the romantic, the bad boy, the former bad boy, the intellectual, the rebel, the kid, the old guy who has been forgotten, the old couple, the young couple, the family.... they all hold something important.
It makes the difference. It really does. Because you learn the most important of all: We might been from other countries, we may have different beliefs, gods, sexual orientation, hobbies, interests, but above all we are humans with stories in us.
