It was the last day of my San Francisco trip and I had been hitting the pavement all afternoon taking pictures. I was exhausted, my feet hurt, my face was sun burnt, and I was about to call it a day and head back to the hotel. That is, until I spotted Joseph on Market Street.
He just had one of those exotic faces that would be burned into my mind forever, and I knew that if I didn't stop him and ask to take his portrait then it would be one of life's little regrets.
I offered him $10 for a few moments of his time, and at first he seemed a little embarrassed by the attention. When I asked Joseph if anyone had ever stopped him on the streets for a picture before, he told me that as a matter of fact he was out with his "baby mama" just the week before and was stopped by a guy working on a photo book. He was paid $10 then, too. With a face like that I think Joseph had better getting attention from us street photogs.
