On my way downtown to do some street shots I paused to take photos of bees buzzing around some giant purple thistles near Centre Street Bridge.
Behind me I hear this guy yell, "Take my picture!"
He said he was out and about looking for something non-flood related. Something happy. I told him that was why I was taking photos of bees in weeds. He offered to pay for a portrait of him and his dog, Scout. I gave him my card so that he could email me, but told him the portrait was free.
Normally, I don't like to do poser-type portraits, but his smiley, happiness made my day. He told me his name, but I only remember Scout's (the Bouvier); who understood commands en francais.
More photos from today.
