character project

i rarely take picture of people
this fellow intrigued me
last summer during the italian festival
while sitting on a patio enjoying
the food, drinks and music
i couldn't resist taking this picture
and of course , the one time i do snap a shot of a person
i get caught!
he was sweet and said he didn't mind
======
while flipping through one of my fashion mags
i noticed this "pull out" advertisement
i was intrigued by the photo
so i looked inside and found some wonderful shots
featuring 11 photographers
from alaska to new york
set out to capture the character of america
they have an amazing site and book
my favorite

joe fornabaio salon style
which i could relate to being a hair stylist
mary ellen mark ny festival in b/w
eric orgen michigan music
close to my hometown and some really
cool photos of bootsy collins and iggy pop
