On my way home from work I decided to take an alternate route and ran into Duane and his buddy Ozzy, who he’s known for many years. Instead of walking by, I decided to stop and chat with them for a bit and got some funny stories as well as a few candid photos as they talked. Duane mentioned he had just gotten out of jail for a misdemeanour (drinking in public) and Ozzy said he was taking a break from his nagging wife (as he put it!). I’ve met and photographed Duane in the past and he was a lot more upbeat this time around. Sometimes having a friend by your side can help beat the blues.
