No matter where I shoot, the true fans have a great kinship for their idols. The women in the foreground in red is in a wheelchair and found out that the only way she could meet the Boyz was to buy a CD. She didn't have the money, and after a few moments the guy in the blue bought her the CD. It was really an amazing gesture, but at the same time I was surprised that the chick in the wheelchair didn't have $14 bucks.

It was funny when this guy walked up with this big poster and a handful of CD's to get signed. I heard the Boyz II Men handlers say here comes potential trouble. They surrounded him and stood on the side of him in case of trouble. Then when he requested a photo with them, they complied and the manager took the photo. It was the only time the signing process was interupted for such an event.
Nathan sports some bling
I always resort to those street shots, I am a paparazzi at heart. Here's Shawn Stockman making his way to the van that will take the Boyz to NYC

finally Wanya Morris strolls to the waiting van
Sorry for the spotty coverage on my blog. My dreams have come true and I am a paparazzi as I set out to be last December 2006 (and I work a full time day job too); now I don't have all the time in the world to do my blog, as I did when I lived in NYC (8/05 - 12/06) and was just a fan with a camera, but don't fret I am taking a few weeks off from trips to NYC (ie winter vacation) and will have more time to write about events dating all the way back to Fashion Week. There are so many stories to tell, behind the scene info and of course I am now finding my way through the Philly Paparazzi scene, and its like starting over. It's a bitch.
