i find that my instagram love has replaced my need to visit facebook much, however on the occasion that i check it out, i’m always excited to see posts from ‘humans of new york’. this is a facebook page that my friend ladan told me about, and it’s brilliant. run by brandon stanton who basically takes photos of interesting people he sees on new york’s streets. err. yah. i probably didn’t need to explain that since the title SAYS IT ALL.
anyway, here are some of my favorite posts of late. and it’s not just the photo portraits i love but the marriage of those with the sarcastic/funny/on point captions:
