I met this gentleman in August of 2007 while photographing in the Village. I was exploring Houston street when he walked out of his store and struck a conversation. He had colorful stories to share...

Needless to say, I was more than happy to photograph him.

Exposure: 1/60, f/4.2, flash, 35 mm, ISO-100 (Original photo shot in color).

Post-processing: sepia, contrast enhancement, added noise.
