Photo of the week #43 – Roland
This weekend was a treat with temperatures above the freezing mark for the first time in months. I started this beautiful sunny day by going for a walk downtown in hopes of doing some street photography (which is most challenging during a Minnesota winter). I spotted this gentleman on a bench with a stack of bibles next to him and a big smile on his face. I started a conversation and soon learned that he was originally from California, now enjoying life in Minnesota and loving it! I asked if I could photograph him, he obliged. We talked about the weather, politics and healthcare. He recited some scriptures and introduced himself. I wished him a glorious day. His name was Roland.
