I couldn't help but notice this guy sitting and selling some scattered art work in Union Square in New York city. Something about people smoking cigars always makes me want to photograph them- it lends a certain degree of character to any face. He was the only person I asked today, so I'm glad he said it was OK to take his portrait. Those were the only words we exchanged.

Seeing this one today made me realize how much I miss doing stranger portraits, I think I'll try to do a lot more in the coming weeks. It's just too much fun to let shyness get in the way. Plus, I have an interesting idea to help expedite the process... :)

That's what he said as he strolled by, watching me hanging around the corner looking for faces to capture. I answered with a click and a smile, which he returned. Sometimes I get pretty shy about asking people to let me take a portrait, so it's always nice when someone else takes the initiative.

I met Arthur while I was wandering down Bedford ave last year, taking pictures of strangers. Williamsburg, Brooklyn is a good place to find some great characters. Arthur was hanging out sketching some awesome abstract line work. Always great to meet new people!

I saw this street performer in Strasbourg, France, two days ago. He was playing outside of a bank for change. I dropped a Euro or two into his case before I snapped a few frames with a 50mm lens. I photographed a few different musicians that day before we went and saw the amazing cathedral.
