Hal Bergman, photographer extraordinaire.
What’s the premise? I’ll offer $1 to anyone who asks me for money in exchange for their portrait. I’m a shy person, but I’ll do my best to find out a little about the person. You never know if it’ll make someone’s day for at least talking to them a little bit.
Fourteen months ago, Wayne flew to Los Angeles from Hawaii. He held a tall can in a brown paper bag, sipping beer – I can’t remember which brand.
I wished him well and continued on my photowalk.
Taylor and Dan gave me the courage to ask the worker at 7-Eleven if I could take his photo.
He said ok, then I asked him to smile. He muttered something about hoping I’m not militant, while I took 5 shots rapidly. (I think he was joking around.)
Then, I thanked him and left. We all had a good laugh outside.
