Superfly, 1987 Federalington, WC

Back when we were young earnest street photographers we prowled the urban environment for any sign of interesting subjects. It was like hunting for elusive prey. Often we would spy upon some interesting denizen or two but were too timid to approach them for a photograph. Sometimes the scene was too risky. However, as depicted here the desire to be photographed met the desire to photograph. This gentleman had just walked out of a store and feeling good about his apparel and seeing Mr. Ed Porter with a camera asked to have his picture taken. This photo has never been published until now.
