Eric (#168)

I had almost an hour's time until my train left. From the main station I walked a block or two and then positioned myself on a corner. I need to move when I'm looking out for strangers, but this time, I chose to just watch the crowds pass me by, even though it was chilly cold.


Once again, it showed that standing still doesn't work for me. No strangers, only cold feet.


I packed up and was about to leave, when suddenly Eric came along. I stopped him and he politely took off his hood. He agreed to the photo and smiled a little unsure when I asked him to put the hood back on.


Eric is a student of information technology. I may have portrayed him a lot darker than he is, but this was the mood I got out of Mannheim (which I did enjoy, btw) and since Eric did seem very calm and serious, I chose to go for it.


Thank you, Eric!
