When I look at this picture, what comes to my mind is that Beatles song, which goes "there are places I remember..." The irony of that song is John Lennon penned most of the lyrics when he was in his early 20s. He would have reflected his own conviction from somebody like this person on the photo. My thoughts is the old man has a lot of stories to tell. I would love to hear them even though I don't really know him. And he doesn't know that I shot his picture.
I posted this photo online and it has been featured on a few photography websites. This poor man doesn't know that he has become somewhat famous.
A crazy thought: What if John Lennon faked his death and he was actually this guy?
Hope your day is going well.
