I'll Be Around (Day 13 of 365)

I've begun a Photo a Day project, you can view and read about it here.


This was a homeless man in Pasadena. I work in Pasadena, and I have never seen this guy before. He was definitely not a regular. So, I was waiting for the bus to get my ride home, and I'm just taking pictures of different things that I will most likely post later. But, as I was taking pictures, I looked at him. I believe he noticed because he stood in front of me for about 4 minutes just kind of shaking, pulling his pants up, and mumbling to himself. I didn't know what to do, and also I was erasing my other card because I didn't do so the night before. So, as he was walking away, I pointed the camera at him. He turned around and came back in front of me. And I asked him "Do you want me to take your picture? I'd love to take your picture." He didn't answer, but kept standing there. So, I took about 7 or 8 shots. Most of them he was closing his eyes, because he was blinking a lot. But I got this photo. And it's definitely the best one. I love it. It's one of the best photos I've ever shot.


Oh yeah, and this is my first picture in Explore. : ) How awesome.
