This is Jim. I met him at a swing band concert this afternoon. We talked about music and local bands, dancing and style. Sharply attired in his zoot suit and fedora, he agreed to pose for a quick picture...because I asked! I am getting a little better at doing that these days.
He is quite the character, and a very kind man. My day was definitely brighter for having met him. I imagine that is a big part of the fun of being a portrait photographer - connecting with someone's story, even for just a brief moment.
