People, especially those living in big cities, are increasingly becoming more and more introverted, at least when it comes to talking to strangers and getting to know their neighbors; the photo series titled My Neighbors by Monica Lek may inspire a few to pull their heads out of the ground to make some new and exciting acquaintances. It is chock full of strange and not-so-strange meetings in the bustling metropolis that is New York City.

My Neighbors by Monica Lek, a photographer born in Barcelona, shows just how much more colorful life can be if people were open to getting to know their neighbors. It is interesting to see these candid shots as well. In a way, they encourage a bit of filling-in-the-blanks.
