West Virginia Swag


I saw this guy at the St. Patrick's Day Festival. I liked his t-shirt. I was on a mission to get some random people photos, something I am horrible at. I tried to get this guys picture without him knowing but he'd never turn around long enough. Finally my husband just said "hey, she wants to take your picture" gah! Embarrassing. Makes me feel like a stalker haha...well anyway, I did think he was interesting, so posed or not, here he is!

  1. Hahaha, I think I would have been mortified. I'm terrible at taking photos of people, although, once when I was taking random photos at a festival, one guy said, hey how abut me? You just never know. This guy looks as though he enjoyed having his photo taken. Nice catch!

  5. Tanya, it is not that hard! 80 percent of the people you ask will say "OK," and the rest are polite when they say no. I haven't run into an axe murderer yet.

  6. When I am in Roanoke I kind of hold the camera at my side to take street photos and get some kind of neat angles. I don't usually mess with people as they sometimes come unglued. The guy looks kind of familiar but I don't know where I would have run across him. It was a nice day to be out!

  7. One of my cousins, Doug, goes to those Swag things, lotsa lotsa hippies... they shut down the one that took place every summer in this area cuz of the drugs going around. The Swag tshirt, long hair, 2 fingers up for the peace sign & the cig in the other hand could pass for my cousin, too.

  9. He was so worth the effort! I love it:) I'm very shy about asking people for pictures, no matter how interesting or amazing they look, and I need to work on it!
