I was walking down the Lakewalk when I caught a glimpse of some ruins I thought would make a nice photo subject. As I approached the shoreline I stumbled upon two guys hanging out, rolling cigarettes, drinking out of paper bags. It was 10:00 in the morning.
We chatted for a bit; about the Edmund Fitzgerald, the Navy, college, growing old, my desperate need for a haircut, journalism…
The fellow was happy to let me take his picture, and his friend recognized my digital camera and said he was going to end up on the internet.
And here we are.
