Portrait: The pipe maker

When I was first getting into street photography, and truth be told back into photography after a short hiatus in the early 2000s, I took my old Konica SLR with kit lens and expired Minolta film down to the DT East Side often, taking portraits and capturing some unique insights into the people who live and work there. In this case, an elderly man who may be long passed away now, some 7-8 years later. He sat quiet, carving pipes with a dollar store x-acto knife.
