100 Strangers: 85/100 Eric


Eric was a flagman during a main waterline replacement. I passed him in the street and realized that I left the camera with the new lens home. My day would be lost without the traditional morning sunflower shot, so I made a sharp U-turn and bolted back past him. This didn't go unnoticed, we struck a conversation and he reluctantly agreed to a few shots on condition that his face won't be posted all over the place.


The 3 elements single coated lens veiled a bit even with hood but was sharp with round unobtrusive "bubbles" in the background.
