People Of Color

In Central Park near the Bandshell, I met this colorfully dressed couple who appeared to be selling extremely colorful knitted items. They gave new meaning to the phrase "people of color." They reminded me of Adam Purple and his girlfriend from the early 70s who rode around on their purple bicycles all dressed in purple and became known as the "Purple People" (if you are not familiar with Adam Purple and his Garden of Eden, see this New York Times article here and this article and photo gallery here). New York City seems to do more than tolerate eccentric people and lifestyles - it embraces and nourishes them. Some become landmarks and institutions.

Great shot! In the large version, it's also nice to see the texture of the knitted items which complements the texture of the bike tires. Or vice versa!
