Doug was enjoying the hot summer day by relaxing in some shade when I noticed and approached him. He first said he liked my tattoos and asked what they meant. After I offered my explanation, we started talking about the Aboriginal festival that was going on in Winnipeg that weekend. Doug gave me the go ahead to take a portrait after which we shook hands and parted ways.
A brief but memorable encounter. One thing I really like about photographing the streets of Winnipeg are the very diverse people I meet, from all walks of life and cultures.
