Richard (#743) 12-28-14

Richard sat looking so relaxed, so at peace. Not so his dog, Charlie Brown. Every passerby required this pit bull mix's attention, not at all threatening, just interested. My attempts to photograph him with Richard were in vain.

But Richard had no issue with being photographed. Originally from Newport Beach, CA, his work took him to Chicago. For eight years, he commuted to Chicago from Newport beach. Pretty ambitious. Finally, he moved to Chicago and raised three children there Now Richard has two grandchildren.

Richard moved to a home on the bay, in Sarasota. He can work from there (sort of) but was not interested in discussing the nature of his work. Both he and Charlie Brown seem satisfied with the arrangement.
