My one and only fan–This gentleman kept me company most of the evening . The green couch is probably the most comfortable one at Back to the Grind. ISO 50 1/10 sec @ f2.2 Canon Powershot G3.
I guess everyone thought it was an April Fools joke by me that I was putting up my work on the wall at Back to the Grind.
I had one person show. This gentleman wandered in off the streets to look at my work.
I’m only kidding, okay? Lots of people came, seeing it was Art Walk night in downtown Riverside.
One of the more compelling aspects of this coffeehouse is the foot traffic it gets and the characters who come in.
I won’t assume anything like he’s homeless since it was too loud inside for me to have a decent conversation with him.
Never thought I’d see this —My student Khai Le was kind enough to share this with me. I’m flattered someone thinks my work is worthy of capturing to share with others.
Still, I never pass up a chance to capture an interesting face.
Men with beards in nice directional light makes for good portrait lighting. I love pictures of people.
He presented me with a good opportunity.
I knew even with my point-and-shoot Canon Sureshot G3, I would do okay.
I’m just kidding about no one showing.
My wife, kids, mother-in-law were there.
Many thanks to Rigo, Francisco, Brenda, Olivia, Marvin, Mae, Edgar, Khai, Dan Schaefer, Paul Ledesma, Mark Benoit and John Welsh for coming by.
Though technically, John was there for his own event.
I hope I didn’t forget anyone. If I did, please chastise me under comments.
