First time in Boston, accompanied by ~Girolamo
and a friend named Rocky, and not more than 5 minutes after arriving, we saw this gentleman walk right past us - and after exchanging a couple of looks, I turned 180 degrees and followed him. I caught up with him and introduced myself, and he told me, I could call him Benson. He agreed to a shot, and after a couple of minutes of talking and finding the right spot to shoot the portrait (his decision, not mine), I ended up with this. He was posing up against a small monument, and if you look closely at the lines in the background, you'll notice that they are all tilted. The man tilted his head strongly to the side when posing, so I had to tilt my camera with it!
