Street Portraits

Evening on Clinton Street. The sun is low, creating strong side lighting on the buildings. I’m capturing the moment with my camera.

Someone behind me gets my attention.

“Hey, you want to take our photo?”

I turn around. It’s not often that someone asks me to be photographed. Usually I encounter a person who’s wondering about what I’m doing, even though my camera is aimed nowhere near him.

So I take one shot and mention it might be on the Web. The guy doesn’t object.

A couple of days later I see the guy again on the street. He asks me if that photo I took of him and his friend is online yet. Since it’s a good shot (I’m not that experienced with doing portraits of people), here it is.
