This is one of my first photos from today. I’d just parked downtown (Queen West) and was walking along when I saw these three guys bumming for change. When I read their sign I couldn’t help but stop and ask if I could take their photo. I was going to tell them to ignore me and just let me shoot them naturally, but the one guy jumped up and said, wait while I get my freak on. We all started laughing and the shot was irresistible. It works in black & white, too, but in the end I decided to leave it coloured. It was a great way to start an outing, let me tell you. I laughed for the next block.
