This is Chicago. No, not the city or the play or the movie. This is Chicago, the man. Character if you will.
After hours of taking pictures at the 8th Annual PatsRun in Tempe, I needed to recharge my batteries. With Beer and food, not electricity. Upon recharge I ventured into the streets and walked and watched for pictures to present themselves.
Enter Chicago. A man I almost walked by with just a glance. Not today though. With camera in hand, I approached him and stated my intention and my ability to pay. He was more than happy to oblige.
In fact, I got a full story of his current life in Tempe/Phoenix area.
Thanks to the time on my last G+ Photowalk #PHX414 in downtown Phoenix, I felt very comfortable talking to him and taking his photo.
I can see myself walking the streets more often. Just need to bring smaller bills ;)
