street sketches

Although my personal style of photography is along the lines of narrative, conceptual and somewhat theatrically-based portraiture, documentary and street photography is something I aspire to do more of as I think it will help me to become a stronger photographer.  So this past weekend I walked the wet streets of LA and Santa Monica in search for the authentic.  I took the advice of Sam Abell, a great National Geographic documentary photographer: 
compose and wait.
 I had a long, interesting conversation with a good-hearted fella who goes by nickname Gypsy RiderAs his name suggests, he rides rails across the country & lives by barter & trade.
