Portrait of a Man I Met Yesterday: Charles of Walnut Hills




Yesterday as I walked out of a restaurant in Walnut Hills, this man happened to be passing right in front of me. He looked at me and said: "How's that new restaurant?" We chatted about it and then he pointed out to me some of the more interesting places along picturesque Woodburn Ave. When we got to my car I asked if I could make a quick portrait of him. He held his bag of groceries, squinted in the sun and obliged me. I thanked him for the chat, we shook hands and went our separate ways.

Meanwhile at the Kenwood Towne Center, you're lucky if someone even says "thank you" for holding the door.

  1. Funny you say that because I've always thought that the people working those popup booths at Kenwood are way more aggressive than panhandlers downtown and no where near as polite.
    Did you eat at kitchen 452?

    1. I was actually photographing it for City Beat. Seems like a great place though, need to go have lunch there soon. Wanna join?
