lifeguard

I said I would post the picture of the lifeguard from Boca beach that I asked to take his picture.  Here he is.  He was looking away from the camera because I told him of my shyness when photographing people. He thought it would make me more comfortable if he was looking away. Isn't he sweet? After seeing it now I thought of what I would've done differently...isn't that the way...

away is fine, he's a life-guard, that's his job, to scan the beach and the sea :)

I think you found the Head Lifeguard. I never see lifeguards this old. Apparently, though, he was flattered to have you ask.

it is the way with casual portraits...too much time-composition etc. ruins the moment. nice work!
