The Whistling Man.

I went to shoot the fog on the beach and I found a man whistling into a microphone. When I asked him if it was alright to shoot his photograph, he spoke slowly and calmly back to me through the amplifier underneath him. His broadcast was to me but it sounded like it was meant for the world. When I got close to him to drop the change I had, his glasses reflected everything he saw back at me. This was one of the most enlightening moments I've had in a long while. It felt like a dream the way everything happened so peacefully. It was an incredible moment.
