Yeah... not a ribbon-winner... but I stepped outside of my tiny, comfortable box and photographed a stranger on the street.

He was kind to me. I didn't die and...

I learned something.

Thanks for that.

but... I also learned that his friend, who I also photographed in his trio, is famous! LOL!... but he didn't have this great beard... LOL again! The funny thing is that the famous guy, Forrest Griffin, said, "But HE has that great beard!" LOL! That's why my daughter and I had stopped. :)

Nice folks. I'll remember them with kindness.

I hope people will say that about me.

What an excellent outing you had - and you'd have never met the bearded guy or the famous guy if not for this silly challenge! Right nice portrait as well!

Maybe I know too much about the story behind it but I think this is a really good portrait. I think it should have finished higher but what do I know? :D Congrats on stepping outside of your comfort zone!

He does indeed appear to be basking in the afterglow of a good meal. Maybe even some wine. Nice idea.

Nice lighting. Nice background blur but enough detail to give context to the environment. Great entry.
