As I was driving down the street I noticed this man painting his fence. "Do you mind if I take your picture?" I asked. He turned to face me, "Well what do you want MY picture for?" he asked. I explained to him that I have a blog as well as a photoblog and he just looked like a very good subject and I just like the look of the fence, his bench, even the color of his clothes. "You just go ahead and take as many as you want, I'm just going to go ahead and paint", he said. Then he told me how much he was enjoying fixing up their home, and how it's going to keep him busy the rest of his life, but that's O.K., he loves doing it. He was a very nice person and the next day I brought a copy to him and his wife and we chatted like magpies. What a lovely experience - all because I asked!!
