All kinds of people were sitting on benches along the river: young and old, skinny and fat, plain and pretty. I hardly know how to characterize this man, but I thought he was definitely worth a picture -- as he gazed off into the distance (westwards) of the river and NJ skyline, contemplating the meaning of the universe and whatever innocence he may have lost back in the 60s.


He never did notice me, which I appreciated; I had only a medium-telephoto with me for this jaunt along the river, and I had to toss out some pictures where people DID notice me as I attemptd to take their picture. But this guy was lost in his own dreams, and that was fine...
