Aquí estoy yo (Éste soy yo) comprando unos anteojos de sol de un tipo en las calles de Nueva York


Explanation:
This gives me the idea that someone is showing pictures of him/herself to another person and one of them shows him/her buying glasses from a street vendor.


Is this what you want to know?
