I declined to give him a dollar and then he asked if I’d take his picture, which I was more than happy to do. He was very happy with the result on the back of my camera and thanked me.
Some more archival shots from April-May, 2009. WordPress is now making it very difficult to search one’s gallery going back any significant length of time – you have to scroll a few frames at a time. As you can imagine, with 3 posts a day, going back to 2009 meant scrolling back through over 14,000 images… Oy vey! Click any image to see them all enlarged.
Another archival photo from April 2009. This fellow was sitting next to me and started by accusing me of something, said he knew what I was up to with my camera. After showing him some of my photo cards I managed to persuade him that I was not a bad guy and he proceeded to tell me about a conspiracy along the lines of pizza-gate that he had the evidence for in these bags he was carrying. He let me take this portrait of him before he exited the train.
Another archival shot, from March 2009. He was well pleased with this when I showed it to him on the back of my camera.
