dayesleeper He was a well polished man
Garmin... His parents named him Garmin after the device his uncle invented. Sadly he never did understand electronics, so he was blacklisted by the family. Trying to fit in, He only wore his phone on his hip to look cool. It didn't even work, but he'd pretend it did as people passed by the shop.
Taken in by his sister "Xie Xie" he found his calling painting nails. Nobody could paint designs like Garmin, he was the Michelangelo of nail art.

dayesleeper Spent 30 minutes or more, talking to a homeless guy named Dave in San Francisco Jan 13th. He didn't do drugs or use alcohol, just lost everything in bad circumstances. Many people I know, are just 1-2 pay checks from being there themselves. Bought him hot food, asked for a portrait, had great conversation, and some laughter.
Seriously this post is not about me getting praise. It's about being a decent human being. Treat others with a bit of kindness. I know people lie and use money for drugs or alcohol. But I figure a hot meal for somebody would go a long way. There are greater riches in this world than money. I don't have much, but I'll give what I've got. Little compassion goes a long way

francesca.dg Well she's walking through the clouds, with a circus mind that's running wild, butterflies and zebras, and moonbeams and fairy tales, that's all she ever thinks about, riding with the wind (JH) #randomness #portrait #stolenportrait #friend #iphone6 #outofthephone #bnwbutnot #monochrome #hikaricreative #elephantgun #sicily #blackandwhite 2w

dayesleeper Three laughter and one shocked.
Eric felt it build. Too many beers and that microwave burrito, hit him like an atomic explosion to the gut. Sure the photo show was packed, but he could let a silent one out right? His buttocks betrayed him like a Shakespeare play and the sound of a freight train roared out of him.
Surrounded by women, both Marnie and Melissa laughed from behind before the fumes hit them. Eric's date laura was shocked and looked on, as his sister buffy laughed as well.
Eric never did hear the end of jokes after that night. Remember folks, sometimes the body betrays the mind.

dayesleeper He stood there like Eric Estrada from CHiP's. Mirrored glasses and all, thinking I could not see him. People always have this preconceived notion glasses make you invisible, but I was onto him like white on rice. The girl in the distance sobbed, for he had just taken her pineapple.
Who takes a pineapple? Let alone where did the pineapple come from, since it's winter? There will be no contraband fruit on my watch.

liliapinoblouin_photo This guy was deep into his own thoughts as he was peeling heaps and heaps of garlic. In the past I never would have interacted with him, afraid of spoiling some magical natural moment. I would have used a long lens, waited, and tried not to be noticed. This time I broke out of my comfort zone: I used a 50 mm lens, went up close, chatted him up. This is all I got, but it made my day.

liliapinoblouin_photo I took a break from my HK project #BHPortDev @BHportdev because I went to #Mexico for a couple of weeks.
I photographed #markets and doors, ans stole a lot of portraits. I am in love with that Country - it may come off as a cliché, but the colors, the warmth, the simple sheer beauty all around are astounding.
I’ll be posting a few of my favorite images over the next few days.
