Lord? Have Mercy


The lighting, the man’s pose and colors of his clothes all came together like a classic portrait, on a warm Memorial Day, so I had to shoot him. My image  sparks  many stories in the minds of my viewers. But here is the real story.

“I was waiting outside of Urban Outfitters on Walnut Street while my daughter shopped. Believe me! If you are anything like me (go in, get it, and get the hell out method). My daughter has to look at every thing at least twice before she buys anything. This gave me a window to shoot some candid street portraits. Being such a warm day, the girls were wearing very little. As a group of girls entered the Store, he checked them out. If his eyes could speak they would say, “Lord? Have mercy”.

What is your story? I would love to read about it.
