Which is great. I didn't get any myself because a combination of sweat and carelessly touching their faces made the pretty faces a bit of a mess by the time I got near a camera again.
And she remembered me from LAST year too, she sent me a very nice note in the email with the pictures. I thought I'd done this the year before as well, but I wasn't sure - you know me and faces. But I recognized the spot (second bridge past the clock on the way to the playground, right before the fork in the path), and she was painting faces, so I thought it was probably the same person. Couldn't be sure
though. I marvel that anybody is able to remember one or two previous chance encounters when they must see lots of people daily to make any form of profit. I couldn't do it. (But people always seem to remember me anyway. Either my facial recognition skills are in fact much worse than I think or I'm more memorable than makes sense. All I know is that this blows my grandiose dreams of being an international jewel thief right
outta the water.)
She sent four pictures, but I think I uploaded one of them twice by mistake. I'll fix it and post the fourth later.( Read more... )
Ana, as you see, is all lawdy-how-gaudy there. I tried to talk her out of it...! But it's her face and it all washed off anyway, and it was done super fast too, which is great. No waiting overly long :)
So yes, should you hop by Central Park and need your face painted, this is where you should go, two bridges north of the Delacorte Clock, right by the fork that leads (on your right) to the most awesomest playground EVAH. (She also gives out maps, which is very useful. If you can read maps.)
