Franklin, the good friend
I had just finished taking a few photos of Steve, the amateur model, when Franklin came strolling up. It turns out that he and Steve are good friends and were planning on meeting up to hang out for a while. When he saw Steve talking to me, and then saw my camera, he asked what we were doing. I explained it to him that I had just been taking photos of his friend, and he immediately asked if I would take a photo of him. I agreed, of course, although the light had changed and was a little harsher than I would have liked. Nonetheless, we spent a couple of minutes making photos. Since neither he nor Steve has internet access or email accounts. I told them that I’d make some prints and leave them with the folks at the diner, which made both of them pretty happy. Franklin was especially happy, he said, because now he’ll have a photo of himself to give to his kids, which he found extra special, since tomorrow is Fathers’ Day.
