Q: How do you take a long exposure picture with people?

A: Do you know?

My mom and I met this man near downtown Iowa City in December when we were out photographing bald eagles. While his name escapes me now, he told us he was part Cherokee, (showed us a tattoo to prove it) and explained how he is one of the eagles. When we introduced ourselves to him in the below freezing weather he was sitting on a fold up chair. As we left (as I photographed this) he was burning the chair in attempts to stay warm.

    This picture captures so much of what you said. Aside from a great story, this picture is wonderfully taken. It takes my imagination in an infinite number of directions as to who this man is, where did he come from, and what his story is. Very beautiful. (:
