this man told me so many interesting things… i don’t know where to start. what struck me most was his vitality and vigor, and of course, his face. he’s 71 and says he walks over 20 miles a day…

    Beautiful portrait. While I don’t know this man, I feel like the most striking thing about him is the fact that he clearly looks like a person who is comfortable in his own skin and follows his own path in life.

    20 miles!??! Wow. Hearing about old folks who do that kind of thing is impressive and makes me feel… really really out of shape. Ha ha. This is also a great picture!

    I used to always see this man sitting in front of Cafe Vita on Capitol Hill on my way home from work but I haven’t in a while. Sounds like he’s still out and about in the area. He always looked like a man with great stories…
