This is a social experiment

Does anyone recognize this beautiful young woman, circa 1968, Location NYC, Central Park, Bethesda Fountain? 

This photo was taken w a 300mm lens. She knew I was shooting her & smiled that little smile. 

I fell in love, returning to the fountain many times but never saw her again. I placed ads in the local paper. I had the photo enlarged to life-size & glued to the back of my rent controlled apt door so I could see it every day as I left for work (a bit creepy, I know). 

Recently I found the original black & white photo (Tri-X film) & decided to share this unrequited social experience with all of you.

Maybe you'll recognize her or she will recognize herself. 

Hopefully you will share this with all your friends. 

What a story if it comes full circle.
