I was on my way home to meet a friend and came across this charismatic looking older man sitting on his front porch about 6 or 7 blocks south of me.  I couldn’t help but stop and ask to take his photo.  He didn’t hesitate to say yes and proceeded to tell me he was half black and half Mexican and that his name was Howard.  I was in quite a hurry, but he yelled after me that he’d like to see the photo later, so I plan to print one out and take it back to him and get a bit more of his story from him.  I’ve seriously missed doing street portraits…my biggest downfall has been the fact that I’m not carrying my camera around lately, so I plan to change that…today was a step in the right direction.
