Day 270/365: This friendly man is a friend of my parents. I had the pleasure of meeting him for the first time today. We were able to visit a bit before I finally asked him if he would be willing to be photographed. He happily agreed, and I got this nice shot. I learned a lot about him after breaking the ice after this photo such as: he has two children, three grandsons, and he's been married three times. He has two prosthetic legs because of getting gangrene in both limbs and he really wanted to go to Vietnam when he was 17 but couldn't because he was diagnosed with diabetes just 4 months before being sent. It's amazing how much you can really learn about a person just by asking to take a picture. I guess that's part of why I love photography so much!
