In My Neighborhood: Sergio


I took advantage of a break in the rain yesterday to take a walk around my neighborhood and take a few pictures. I ran into this fellow, who owns a shoe store a couple blocks away from me, and we started talking about some of the tree branches that had come down the night before and that were still lying on the sidewalk. A few minutes later, I was taking a picture of the sign in his window, and we talked a little more about his shop. I asked him if I could take his picture, and he said sure. I was pretty happy with how this one came out. I'm thinking I should print up a copy for him and take it to him.

Wow, that's a nice shot, Generik. I really like the structural background elements framing him.

Thanks. The background seems a little busy, but I think the color and the angularity of it work. Plus, he's obviously a pretty photogenic guy.

Really nice portrait. I bet he would love to have a copy.
