Photographer's Note

I met this man just as we sat down to eat our first TE gathering meal.......I'd just spotted this very colourful graffiti mural and saw this chap sitting in front of it - he offered to move - and i quickly admitted I was more interested in photographing him than the mural. He told me it had been painted by someone from Portugal and how much he liked this guy's work......and then he got into wondering why i should want to photograph him.........I told him that I thought he had a very kindly face and that whatever life had dealt him he seemed to come through it with his spirit intact......indeed he dealt with me in the calmest and kindest of ways. I now wish I'd spent more time with him as I really warmed to him......I was not sure how he was living but I'm guessing he had a stable place to stay......he was just so accepting and happy to have met me and for someone to take an interest in him.............
