Street Portrait: Pink

No, not the singer (who was just in Winnipeg the other day), but a friendly guy who I encountered as he was about to cross the street. Thankfully there was about 20 seconds left on the crossing signal which was enough time to walk up, point my camera, ask him for a photo while clicking the shutter! He was a bit curious why I would want his photo and joking exclaimed “you’re not a cop, are you!?”.

Just a street photographer who thought you looked interesting!

He was fine with it and liked the photo. I typically shoot in black and white and while the RAW file always keeps a colour profile I decided to leave the shot as-is. Why the name Pink? I didn’t have time to delve into that but judging from his hair colour and hoodie (both pink), it was his favourite colour!
