Polaroid Land Camera 250, Fuji 100C
Lubbock, TX
June 2014

This is outside of my favorite coffee shop in Lubbock. This guy was studying his chess board when I asked him if I could take his photo. He was reluctant and seemed suspicious. I explained that I just liked taking photos with my old camera, and he got on board. In fact, he asked all about the camera and became quite enthusiastic.

He was particularly proud of his wooden chess set, and invited me to join the local chess club, which meets at the coffee shop every Friday night at 6.

"I asked him if I could take his photo."

Still not comfortable as a street shooter.

Nope. I don't see it happening any time soon. :-)
