This guy was either a priest or a “father” of some type. I wouldn’t have cared much for his spiel and he knew it. He probably wouldn’t have bothered trying to save me, and that’s OK…

Photographing NYC for 25 years, six of them while driving a New York City taxi. Trying very hard to capture the city as life unfolds, meaning I never stage any of my photos! Also I am a close confidant of the immortal Dave Beckerman, (quintessential NYC photographer) and owner of the first photography blog in the known universe.

Hahahahaha, had the same experience not a few days ago. It was a she, and I was a bit inebriated. She believed so strongly that she tried to convert me right there and then, we debated for a while, till she knew she was going nowhere.
The best part was her ending the conversation with “I’ll pray for you”
Without sounding like a disrespectful idiot (my family are religious, and was bought up as such..but ya know…)I involuntarily burst out laughing. She wasn’t happy about that.
I have hour long conversations with true believers and been very civil. I’ve been told I’m going to hell three or four times. I usually tell them I want to go there so I can hang with all my friends.
What would the definition of spending eternity with Pat Robertson or Jerry Falwell be? Doesn’t sound very much like heaven…
