079.100 Franco

I’d seen this gentleman a number of times over the course of the summer — always with an unlit cigar between his lips — but I’d never been able to get the timing right to stop and talk with him. Today the opportunity finally presented itself.

This is Franco. He was not overly talkative, but kindly allowed me to make a portrait of him. He didn’t want to remove his sunglasses, as they’re part of his look — fair enough! I quite like how the final portrait turned out, with his dark lenses creating an air of mystery while the bright purple frames seem to speak to a playful good humour.
