Mechanic at Laurie's Auto
On an exceptionally warm day, I spotted this guy from across Bronson and knew I had to take his photo.
I made my way across and rather than my usual line "hey, you look cool, can I take your photo," I chatted with the guy because... I don't know, it just worked out that way :-)
Anyway, through talking to him, I found out how much he loved fixing up old cars; in fact, he was there on his day off! I love that kind of dedication toward anything - it's beautiful.
Afterwards, I asked if I could take his photo on the little bench; he didn't hesitate, smile or act nervously. He just went back to work, which is exactly what I love to capture: people doing what they're passionate doing.
