So I’ve been influenced a lot recently by some great “Street Photographers,” and have tried several times in trips past to snatch a photo of people in their real lives. I really think this is one of my favorites thus far. I saw this guy sitting next to a pole at a gas station in Tempe, Arizona. It was close to midnight, and there was pretty much no activity in the area to speak of. The streets were quiet with the night, and as I watched, he sat content, reading his book, stopping occasionally to take a drink.
I saw a cool video the other day from a higher up of a major advertising firm, who ended by discussing how people tend to try and group other people, and I thought it fit pretty well for this guy.
