Pierre (#821) 03-28-15

Walking through Winter Park, Pierre was sitting on a bench on park Ave. He was on the cell phone. Suddenly he laughed, exposing gold teeth – all of them that I could see. I had to get a shot, so I waited about 50 feet away. Of course, he seemed to stay on the phone forever, so I looked for a spot with good light and a decent background. Holy smokes, about 20 feet away was the perfect sign!

When Pierre finally was free, I approached him. He was receptive, although shy. He liked my idea of the sign and kneeled down without reservation. Pierre works at the nearby Pairs Bistro. Although from Polk County (about 30 miles away) he is able to stay with friends close to work.

The million dollar smile.
