June 29, 2004 - Naked in New York

June 29, 2004 - Naked in New York

New York City

We got to see a performance by the Naked Cowboy today at Times Square. We had heard about his
legend and were delighted to see him this afternoon during our visit to the Big Apple. My daughter
Jessica wouldn't pose with him (he must make a fortune posing with tourists who then tip him), but
this lady did.

This is the first photo I ever saw on PBASE, still one of my favorites. Regards.

nice shot -- the blue guy is getting in the way, though

Nice perspective on a commonly photographed scene.

i love her expression. if you have a chance to visit toronto, you might see a singing 80-yr old who wears a 'better than viagara' t-shirt. on a lucky day, you'll see his daughter there too o_O

The look on her face says it all.

My husband, who is into music himself, stumbled upon this guys website a few months ago. His story is worth reading, and no matter what your goal is life is, I believe that anyone could be inspired by him.

Great picture!!

I love the "Can you believe this?" look on her face.
Congratulate her on her good sense.

Love the juxtaposition of the two. I think she's saying !"What do you think of THAT?!"
Fine capture!

Hmmm... I wonder if that gets chilly in the winter? ;) Love the expression on Jessica's face!

OMG the expression on your daughters face is priceless. I was in NYC two years ago and he was there, and he's still there? Tips must be good!

OH MY GOD!!! HE'S REAL!!!! The last time I was in NYC, this taxi driver asked if I'd seen the naked cowboy ... I thought it was a come on line! LOL So then he tells me he really exists ... I didn't believe the cabbie! BUT HE'S REAL! Great shot Steve!
Karen Leaf30-Jun-2004 03:46
You have a beautiful daughter, who seems to have a lot of sense, esp. if your other shot is any indication of his intentions :)
Guest 30-Jun-2004 02:33
Oh, and Liza (snootydog), we're all pretty sure it's the New Yorkers. :)- LOL
Guest 30-Jun-2004 02:33
I could be wrong, but I think the naked cowboy has some ties to Cincinnati. He is a frequent guest on a talk radio station here in town. This is a great composition! And SO funny! LOL Btw - Jessica steals the show in every picture she's in, even ones with the naked cowboy. :)

Hey, I live in NY and I have never gotten to see the naked cowboy. Great shot. With that said, I want to comment on the fact that NY is NOT filled with characters... have you all ever considered that NYers are the NORMAL ones and the rest of the world is filled with characters? ;-)

By the way, I really like the look you captured on her face here. Nice sharp image too.
Guest 30-Jun-2004 00:35
haha! i have never head of the naked cowboy, thats too funny! and the shot of him grabbing the woman?! TOO GREAT! i love your daughter's expression!
Anne Young30-Jun-2004 00:35
Hahaha... gotta love NYC! I was just there on Sunday. As usual, the characters were out and about -- here are some of my pics

I don't blame Jessica for not wanting to pose with the naked cowboy... I wouldn't either! :)

Good for your daughter! That's as close to this fellow as I'd want to get also.
Steve Pepple30-Jun-2004 00:30
He's wearing cowboy boots to stuff tips into.
Si Kirk30-Jun-2004 00:27
