As a dog lover and a lover of photography, what more could have drawn me to Elliott Erwitt's studio? The man had been hounded by me for months since I started this blog, and we finally met up one fine day in January. The girls and I sauntered up to the Upper West Side to join Elliott walking down Central Park West. He wanted to sit a bit, get to see the dogs and let them sniff him before we went on our loop that ended up at his studio. A few stories were told and I must have passed muster, as I was invited upstairs for a delicious espresso that he made me.
