Woman with chihuahua in bag
Boston, Aug. 2: I happened to see this woman walking around Beacon Hill, and I think, "Cool. There's a little dog in there." I don't stop them. When you stop them, it just ends up changing the whole moment, and they get all tight. The whole picture stops. ... Here, I just parked the car quickly, probably illegally, and ran back like crazy with the camera and said, "Just keep walking while I shoot your dog." I think it's such a blast that she sees herself in the paper the next day, and you probably made her day. I do enjoy that.
