I was out shooting for the last hour before I had to pack up and head to the airport to fly home. Trawling Powell St. looking for images; I liked the building in the background so took a picture…put my camera down and noticed this guy looking at me and then the building I took a picture of.
‘I never really looked up before’
’That’s a nice building man’
We chatted for a bit, Ben said he was having a bit of a rough patch which was why he was never really looking up – just down at his feet. Despite his challenges, Ben enjoyed stopping to chat with someone and asked if I’d take his picture in front of the building he liked in the background.
A random encounter. But I think we both had a better day as a result of taking the time to chat.
