Leona (#490) 12-23-13

I saw Leona walking on the opposite side of the street, one half block from a Starbucks. Immediately, she seemed a bit of an enigma, so I crossed and approached her. Leona wore a leather, or faux leather outfit. I can't tell. Clearly, she had no teeth. And she carried a clear Starbucks cup containing a cafe au lait colored drink.

At first, Leona seemed suspicious of me. She softened up when I showed her my Flickr Photostream on my phone. Then I explained that a large reason for the project was to get out and meet people. She said, “That's good. Nobody don't talk to nobody no more.”

I liked the shot. Leona did not want a copy.
