To see more of Joel’s imagined moments with Leonardo DiCaprio, follow @mydaywithleo on Instagram.
For Joel Strong, a locations scout and talent manager in New York City, My Day with Leo (@mydaywithleo) is part joke, part tribute. “He’s an icon who is still relevant,” he says. “Growing up in the ’90s, he was certainly on all of my girlfriends’ walls.”
Sometimes silly, sometimes surreal, each post is like a single-panel comic that hinges on a found picture of Leonardo DiCaprio, clipped from a magazine or book. “I might put a 14-year-old, This Boy’s Life Leo on the body of a grandma,” he says. “Or I might take him to the streets in the East Village where he probably actually walked around in the ’90s with David Blaine and Tobey Maguire, trying to find girls.”
Do you hate people? I don’t hate them…I just feel better when they’re not around.
Too Slow for those who Wait,
Too Swift for those who Fear,
Too Long for those who Grieve,
Too Short for those who Rejoice;
But for those who Love,
Time is not.
Love is a fire. But whether it is going to warm your hearth or burn down your house, you can never tell.
My daddy said, that the first time you fall in love, it changes you forever and no matter how hard you try, that feeling just never goes away.
