Roderick - 100 Strangers: 14/100
, on Flickr
Everyone meet Roderick.
I recently purchased a new camera and had been dying to get out and snap off some new photos with it. So on Sunday it was my birthday and mothers day so I finally found some time. I was strolling around downtown and was approached by this man Roderick. He told me he didnt have much money, maybe about 30 cents, but he wanted to know if he could buy a cigarette. I was in a good mood so I told him he could just have one if he didnt mind posing for a picture. He hesitated just a bit at first but I assured him I'd make him look great. So he said go sure. He gave me a little pose and I snapped off this picture. Afterwards I let him see it on the live view. He seemed to like it and smiled and gave me a pat on the back then rolled off.
This picture is #14 in my 100 strangers project. Find out more about the project and see pictures taken by other photographers at the 100 Strangers Flickr Group page
