Here we go, the very beginning. The very first post here. Welcome on board.
I was in Dublin, on last March, wandering around with some friends, when I noticed this man sitting for a coffee in front of a pub. That was the first time I explicitly asked to someone never met before to pose for a portrait. It was not easy for me, and he seemed a little reluctant at the beginning, but eventually he accepted. I quickly took just a couple of shots, and this is the second one (in the first one he was freezed and unrelaxed, and I was too).
“What’s the matter, probably you’ll never meet him again!” had incited me a friend of mine, seeing me worried to ask. Probably.
Well, the weird thing is that she would have met this man again, a couple of weeks later, in a completely different situation, also finding out he is an actor.
I like the idea that a pic taken in that first time was the first pic on this photoblog. Let me know your thoughts.
