Smoke Screen by Ryser915 Smoke Screen by Ryser915
Photojournalism > People

This is a photo of an old man walking down Columbus Avenue towards Tremont Street on an extraordinarily cold day. He is a regular visitor to a few Boston neighborhoods, and is quite familiar to many. He just walks and walks and walks. I have never seen him not walking. The neighborhood he was walking through was a rough one, but no one would ever give this man any trouble. This man would be great for an interview. If you view this in full view the smoke looks pretty cool.

A perfect shot if you asked me. I'd like to know this man. Something about him reminds me of the old guys on the reservation.
