Midnight Rider

At the very end of the Farmer’s Market & Tulips on Pearl Street shoot today, Allena and I came across this fine looking homeless man, sitting at the edge of the aisle of booths. I did my best Parker Pfister attempt, walked up to him and asked him his name to which he replied, “Down South, I’m known as the ‘Midnight Rider’.” Interesting. I quickly asked him if I could snap a photograph of him and he obliged. I envisioned a black and white image from the start, before I even approached him, so back in the Digital Darkroom using Lightroom, I did a B&W conversion, added some contrast and came up with these.
