Portrait of a New Yorker, in Fashion

candid, NYC
Photo by myself on the subway, underground.

A woman was immersed in listening to her music on the subway. She made a striking impression with her clothing and hair.

When I noticed that we got out at the same station, I hailed her down. Saroya turns out to be a very warm and friendly person. She happily posed for more photos on the platform.

Saroya works at the giant Duane Reade store in the Wall Street area. This new store offers everything from sushi to a hair dressing. Saroya works at the salon there and plans to launch her own line of nail polish.

New Yorker, on the subway platform
Looking chic seems natural to Saroya, the latest New Yorker in our portrait series.

The Portrait Series is a once-in-a-while installment, featuring New Yorkers encountered on the street.

Hi Kitty, have just been been browsing your photos and subjects and love them. Reminiscent of the times that I've left behind and dreams of the places I've yet to visit. :) deb.

Nice portrait of Saroya! Fun that we smiled and turned out to be friendly enough for a "Steffe interview."
I dig her cool, chic, yellow scarf!
Happy weekend, Kitty of NYC

Beautiful photo, Kitty. I'd read that article about the new Duane-Reade! Sounds like the perfect mix of really cool and really strange. If we were in NYC, I know my wife would totally take advantage of the $10 manicures!
