    What a familiar face, feels like I’ve seen her in the neighborhood. Oh yes, she is a waitress at a local restaurant.

    It’s becoming a little ridiculous how much I love this website. I am spending so much free time looking at these peoples lives and am struck by a really intimate and special insight. You capture them so beautifully. Leyla has such an amazing look and yet the images seem to reach deeper. Keep it coming.

    I like Leyla’s space. Michael knew her well it seems.

    • Treadsafe,
      Actually I dont know her well, though we had met a few times before.
      I always wanted to shoot her as she has such amazingly expressive eyes.
      I think I got to know her a bit better after our shoot. We had such a great conversation while shooting. She is an extremely intelligent and deep girl.
      Thanks for commenting.
      Regards,
      Michael

    The scarf on the fridge is ingenious! Such a small touch makes a big difference!

    LEYLA, you’ve broken my AAW cherry. I am not only in love with your space, but now this blog. Look forward to frequenting this digital space during my afternoons.

    Her home looks so bright and lovely, it’s a shame she looks so bored and glum.

    I’m going to repeat myself, but once again gorgeous, brilliant. Everything looks so natural and fresh. Love it!

  10. OK, here’s someone I can deal with. Her apartment looks just about like mine would–if I had to live in a small space. However, she does a nice job of keeping it all together. Who has time as an aspiring actress to think about putting everything in a photographic spot? I think I’ll hang a bright scarf on my fridge handle!

    • Vivian,
      I met Leyla through my wife a couple years ago. As soon as I met her, I knew I had to take pictures of her.

      Leyla has a quiet and very calming way about her that others can sense immediately. She would be an extraordinary actress.

      Michael
