I’ve taken a lot of people’s pictures – probably more than 20,000 at this point. When I ask most people they say “yes.” If people don’t want me to I don’t. It’s all good with me. Sometimes people get angry with me for asking. I don’t really understand that reaction but to each their own I suppose. One of the stranger things I’ve noticed in photographing faces is a certain look guys put on. We might be talking, laughing together and having a beer but as soon as the camera comes up it’s like WHAM, they need to look tough. No smiling allowed. Once I’ve taken their pictures they go back to being themselves. I don’t get it. Any ideas would be welcome.
Anyway, here they are, the tough guys.
I’ll let you in on a secret. One of these guys actually was tough. I’ll let you try to figure out which one it is.
