As I walked on a sidewalk, I saw Unis sitting at a table, facing away from me. I don’t like to approach people from behind. I prefer to walk towards someone so that I can make eye contact before speaking. But Unis’ hair had a medusa quality and I just couldn’t pass him by. So I walked past him by a few yards, then turned around and spoke. At first he shrugged and asked how I would use the image. When I described flickr, and this blog, he consented.

To my delight, he did not change his position at all, and kept the facial and hand gesture. Sometimes, you just get lucky.
