...In a Highback Chair

There's a residence as you drive into North Birmingham, that his intrigued me for much of the last two years. Often of a morning, this fellow will be sitting outside in his highback chair, next to the sofa, reading the paper. Sometimes accompanied by a mongrel dog or cat. I have mulled stopping to ask to take his photo more times than I can count. My breakthrough finally came yesterday. As I passed the house on my way in to Birmingham, I decided to stop; but being that I was already past it, I had to turn around and go back. I asked to take his photo, and he complied, apparently without finding to much oddity in the request.


  1. there has to be more to the story, right?

  2. Well, there's not any more to my story. But there's certainly more to his. Perhaps I'll be more inquisitive when I return to take him a print of his portrait.
