Rebekka or Bekka as her new friends call her arrived here in NYC from Namibia 4 months ago. She was watching her children play in the nearby park and I was captivated by her presence.
So being the friendly guy I am, I walked over and asked if I could take some pictures of her. We got to talking and she asked to see some of my other photos. Fortunately I always travel with my laptop. Her father is a journalist in Africa working for Reuters traveling from country to country with a photographer buddy so that helped drive our conversation and her comfort level. She quickly started comparing the folks walking by to animals from back home. She was wickedly funny while being almost angelically beautiful.
