Nick walked up to the corner where I was waiting to cross the street. On their way to the lakefront, he and his infant son, Hayes, were out to enjoy the beautiful afternoon. There was a nice breeze helping minimize the high levels of humidity we typically swim in as we move about here in Florida, so it was a nice day to be outside. Striking up a conversation, I learned that Nick had relocated from New Orleans to Kissimmee after the devastation of 2005’s Hurricane Katrina. He met his wife here, and he works hard doing restaurant remodeling jobs. Nick is another person I found it both easy and a pleasure to meet and speak with. I hope he likes his street portrait as much as I enjoyed taking it.
Wow, Earl! Your street portraits are getting REALLY good! I look forward to each new one!
I am happy to hear that you are enjoying them, Carl. This has been a wonderfully engaging project for me, and I am meeting so many interesting people in the process.
I love how the light is shining on his face and the twinkle in his eyes.
Thank you, Barbie. I was also very pleased with the way the sunlight naturally fell on Nick’s face and made his eyes appear to “twinkle”. 🙂
