Met this really friendly guy on the streets of San Franscico. He was homeless and living on the streets, but was enrolled in the city's food program. This particular day the sun was shining, but this guy had such a positive attitude to life, taking into consideration his situation that I think the sun shone for him everyday.

A nice portrait, Elaine, full of joy. His smile is contagious. Wh should think twice before to complain for little things and take example from this man. I think he is also a street musician, isn't it? If yes I add this picture to the hpmonymous theme.

Technically excellent - despite the huge contrast in lighting on the hat, the lit and shadowed areas of the face, the mouth organ, you've managed to show us the highlights and shadows with all their details. And a very engaging portrait. Also a tribute to the D70's metering capability.
