So...I was out shooting some pictures for the Leading Lines challenge and I ran across this dude sitting under the bridge I was taking photos of. He asked me if I could spare him some change and I pulled out allt he money in my pocket....which happened to be 2 cents. I told him "Well, I can give you my two cents worth..." He got a kick out of that. Then he told me he was going from New Orleans to Denver on a bike and that he has hiked across Europe before. When I had to leave I asked him if I could take his picture and he said he had to pose next to his bike because it was basicall his home. All in all...he as a pretty cool guy, although I never got his name.

He looks like he's lived a life and a half.. I don't care for the blurred edges.. think this would be better if the entire image was sharp 5

The photo brings out good detail and really suggests a travelled appearance.

A face that come with a story, and you captured in all its detail and glory. The b&w tones are very good. Great job!
