Barbara Iweins does what I wish I had the courage to do: talk to strangers on the street. My Brooklyn neighborhood is host - and home - to a vibrant, and often very stylish, cast of characters. The fact that I live next to a bar whose patrons seem to have stepped off the pages of the Sartorialist only adds to the excellent people-watching.
I find myself wondering all the time who these people are and where they came from. But the thought of actually asking has never crossed my mind. On her popular blog, Au Coin De Ma Rue, ("at the corner of my street" in French), Barbara does just that.
I'm so inspired after paging through Barbara's archives that I'm thinking of adding another New Year's resolution to my list: talk to strangers. What do you think?
