Speaker for Salvation Army

Better on B l a c k M a g i c

 

Todays challenge on www.photochallenge.org/ was "Speaker", when I left home this morning I had it in my mind to take a shot of a Audio speaker of some type, but as I was walking to the Office going past Grand Central on 42nd Street, when I saw this Officer (I think they have ranks, not really sure, but looked like an Officer to me) using the Microphone and speaking to the crowds passing by trying to raise money for those less fortunate, he was a good speaker and seemed to be doing well with collections.

As you know I don't often take shots of people, well not when there awake and know I am taking a shot of them, ie I stay across the road and zoom right in, but for a change I got fairly close, indicated to him I wanted to take a shot of him which he didnt seem to mind and took a few shots, then gave a donation and thanked him and carried on to work, a nice start to the day
