Hurricane Sandy paralyzed the East Coast and most of New York City over the last few days, causing massive destruction and shutting down pretty much everything. But not even Sandy could stop Bill Cunningham, the New York Times‘s intrepid octaginarian and original street style photog, from getting on his bike and seeking out stylish ladies and gents.
The NYT metro desk tweeted this picture of Cunningham (via food photographer Penny de los Santos), out on his bike yesterday on the streets of NYC, snapping away. We love that he traded his usual royal blue jacket for a blue rain poncho. (Anyone who’s still going out tonight and considering dressing up as Bill for Halloween should feel free to adopt this look in case of inclement weather.)
Cunningham’s work ethic and resilience is epic–he was even hit by a car after a fashion show last February (and thankfully walked away unscathed). He’s truly inspirational and we can’t wait to see what kind of post-Sandy shots he got.
Just be careful with your bike on those slippery leaves, Bill!
