This Guy, Coney Island, NY

Who: This Guy, youngish
What: cotton (probably)
When: photographed July 31st, 2010
Where: Coney Island, NY
Why: I work here every summer. This guy did not seem interested in having his photograph taken, but I was determined. Look at it, how could I pass this up? Having taken his picture, and climbed aboard the Wonder Wheel, my pal Caitlin said to me, Not everyone wants to be part of your project. Too true, Caitlin.

I'm going to find that guy and fight him and get a t-shirt story out of him. With my intimidation.

My comment seems harsh in print, but I swear I was just ribbing Val!

I thought you were pretty brave to attempt a conversation with a man who was putting us in a cage of doom. And did not want to discuss his career choice in front of a long line of customers.

Best of luck with that, James. Really, good luck.

And Caitlin, let's not beat around the bush. You know what you said, I know what you said. End of story.

I can tell you right now, that is not what he wanted.
