Outside Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam I saw Bert and he was fumbling around looking for a light so I went and offered him one and added would it be ok for me to take your photo ?

To my surprise he answered sure why not !

I liked that, most people are a bit supspicious or question your motive but he was game . He was waiting to meet his wife and as I took quite a while getting the shot he was looking around making sure he didn't miss her, which I prefered as it gave the photo a more natural feeling .

After taking the shot I showed it to him and I think he really liked it as he offered to buy me a beer which I declined to which he said "it's good for you " well I was on my way to a gig so maybe next time Bert .
