Trying to capture character

Why photograph people? Sometimes one tries to show either physical comeliness, sometimes to convey a message. But there are those times when one comes across a person who’s face is filled with character and untold stories. Their eyes sparkle and their smile is infectious. Mr. Galaz is one such person. He’s a traveler who lives in an RV. I met Mr. Galaz over a year ago and have wanted to try and capture his spirit. I hope you enjoy the end result seen below. I gave Mr. Galaz a prints of my efforts and well he nearly burst into tears and said “No one’s ever taken such a good shot of me, ever”! He told me would be giving them to his kids and grandkids. Made my day.
