Victor (#658) 09-30-14

Victor was sitting under a roof next to a convince store in St. Petersburg. He offered no resistance to being photographer, but was very shy and quite. Friendly, but quiet. He moved to St. Perersburg from New York City 15 years ago. As A child, I had lived in Queens. Victor has lived in Brooklin, Manhattan, the Bronx, Staten Island and Mt. Vernon – everywhere BUT Queens. He is very glad to have made the move to Florida.

Victor is retired from the New York Transit Authority. Had he not retired when he did, Victor wold have been on duty during 9/11, which surely would have been a life changer.

An hour later, I passed by the same location. Victor was still there, reading a newspaper. I think that he had found his spot.
