Street Portraits

Here are few more portraits I took while in Seattle’s U-District. Pictured above is a guy who calls himself Hurricane II. He sells the the Real Change newspaper behind the UW bookstore. I think he liked getting his picture taken. The flag was his idea and he waved it around like a real pro. If you ever see Hurricane around, be sure to buy a newspaper from him.

This is a picture of Maggie. She works on the Ave as a direct fundraiser for a children’s charity. She’s one of those people who stop you on the street, shake your hand, then convince you to sponsor a child. I think that must be a really tough job, but judging by Maggie’s smile, the work doesn’t seem to be getting her down.
