Hi! I'm L.
I've a pug, a tattoo and tons of books.
This is pretty much what you can find in my mind.
Enjoy the ride.

"You want to photograph me eating chicken?""Yep.""Well, if I let you, I need you to help me deliver a message.""What’s that?""I work at this library. And before that, I was coming here for twenty years. It’s my favorite place in the world. As many people know, the main reading room of this library is supported by seven floors of books, which contain one of the greatest research collections in the world. Recently, the library administration has decided to rip out this collection, send the books to New Jersey, and use the space for a lending library. As part of the consolidation, they are going to close down the Mid-Manhattan Library Branch as well as the Science, Industry, and Business Library. When everything is finished, one of the greatest research libraries in the world will become a glorified internet cafe. Now read that back to me."

I am one of the officers in this picture. My friend found it in your book and pointed it out to me. The victim under the sheet was a woman in her late fifties. She was Miss Austria in her early 20’s and a contestant in the Miss World pageant. At the time of her death she was destitute and alone, but still carried her passport with a photo of her at the peak of her beauty. She was stunning. On October 22nd of last year, wandering the halls of the building she had chosen for her last act, she had looked for an open window at the record company that produces Maroon Five. Asked to leave, she found one a floor above in a hallway, took sleeping pills, sat on the ledge in the sunlight for about ten minutes, then leaned forward. Anyway, thanks for the photo. It is one of those souvenirs of one’s life that come to be valuable because it has unexpectedly captured a moment of you doing your life’s work, genuine and unrehearsed.

"I’m trying to keep him away from all the negativity so that he has a fighting chance. There are so many cracks to fall through. But I already got his older brother to college."

"They were filming that show ‘Gossip Girl’ across from my apartment. I marched right up to the crew and said: ‘Do you have any idea what you’re doing to the youth of America?’""Is the show really bad?""Oh, I’ve never seen it. But gossip is horrible. It ruins lives."

"He’s an engineer, and he always thought it was stupid to have a bed sitting in the middle of a room. So when our ceiling collapsed during a flood, he took the opportunity to build our bed into the ceiling. Now we have much more space, and when we’re ready to sleep, we just flip a switch and the bed lowers to the ground."

I took this photo just a few minutes ago. She was sitting outside of a bar. As I photographed her, she kept inhaling deeply, then exhaling slowly. “Man,” I thought, “I’m really annoying this girl.” Until…
“What was the saddest moment of your life?”“Right now.”“What happened?”“The person I love wants to take a break. He’s still inside.”
