Due to my propensity to ask people to pose in the street, I just had the unique experience of being yelled at by Alec Baldwin’s mother (left). Which, incidentally, gave me a really interesting glimpse into the life of Alec Baldwin. UPDATE: This is Elaine Stritch, Broadway legend, who PLAYS Alec Baldwin’s mother. On 30 Rock.
I found this man on 7th Avenue in Park Slope. He was leaning heavily on his cane, looking down, wearing a grimaced face. I felt bad for him, so I smiled and waved when I walked past. His face changed completely. He lit up, smiled wide, and gave me a cheery greeting. There was nothing forced about it. He seemed like a man who went through life looking for the smallest excuses to be happy.
