This man was happily jaunting along Eastern Parkway when I asked for a photograph. He agreed, on the condition that I sit with him for a few minutes.
He was very much the director of this photo shoot. He would never really agree to the photographs I wanted to take. (“How about a nice one over there, under the trees?“) He would just shake off the suggestion and return to his own inspired ideas. In particular, he was very intent on getting an extreme close-up of his eyes.
