I think this picture looks better a little larger.
Part of my Lunchwalk Series, which I’ve been trying to restart. Work has been exceptionally busy, and I often eat lunch at my desk now. But today I had to drop off some dry cleaning, so I took the opportunity to shoot some photos while I was out.
When I saw this man on the street corner, I just had to take his photo. I put some money in his tin can and asked permission to photograph. He was fine with it, but I also tried feebly to communicate to him that I would return the following day with his photo as a print. I don’t know if he understood what I said, but I printed out the pictures to take to him, anyway. I sure hope he’s at the corner again — I’d like to see what his reaction is like (and take a photo of that, too!).
