I met Bob on Michigan Ave in Chicago. He is 70 yrs old and has beautiful pale-blue eyes. Bob said he lost his only family when his mother died about five years ago. He said she was 90 yrs old and it seems like just yesterday she was around. Since I took this photo, I have seen Bob again; he was in better health this time, having gone to the hospital and received some medicine for his cold.

    very striking, and a lot of life in Bob's face. This is one of the best portraits on the site for me.
