Met this wonderful gentleman in a cafe in Stirling, South Australia.
He had lovely eyes, a beautiful smile and engaged in conversation easily. He was very proud of his Davy Crockett hat that he’d bought in Colorado 12 years prior. He’d also bought his bolo tie in Arizona on one of his 20 trips to the Americas. Wish I could have had more time with him to hear his stories.
He graciously agreed to allow me to take his photograph.
