Standing inside the City Market, paptiently waiting for my Philly cheese steak, I saw this figure walking across the courtyard. We were 20 minutes from a Mayoral rally and the crowd was thickening. When I got my sandwich, he was gone. I was told he would be back. He was indeed. He lumbered over to one of the benches, protest signs in hand, paper bag for a hat and the unexplainable face paint. I walked over to him and asked if I could photograph him. He said nothing, turned to me slightly and, sat back and I took the shot. To this, he did not protest.
