Photo by myself around Fifth Avenue and 51st Street.
Not the greatest photo, I admit, but that's not my point!
It wasn't until I got home that I realized who the man is in this photo. He's Chris Kimball from America's Test Kitchen, a cooking show on public television, here in the States.
Chris is the sensible cook on the show, who asks careful questions about every recipe. As you can see in my photo, he's wearing his trademark glasses and bowtie. He is also grimacing, having realized he's been paparrazo'ed.
Mark and I giggled a lot about it (okay, it was mostly me, cackling with a terrible self-satisfaction).
A much better photo of Chris Kimball from the internet.
I'm adding Chris to my brief list of celeb sightings, which includes Uma Thurman (twice), Ethan Hawke, Isaac Mizrahi, Dave Lachapelle, Jane Pauley, Tim Gunn, Barbra Walters, Sam Talbot, and lastly a possible Ed Norton, whom I stalked down the sidewalk on the Upper West Side.
Anyway, it just goes to show that if you take enough photographs in New York City, you will take a celebrity photo. It's sort of like the monkey with typewriter phenomenon.
The infinite monkey theorem states: 'a monkey hitting keys at random on a typewriter keyboard for an infinite amount of time will almost surely type a given text, such as the complete works of William Shakespeare'.
