American Faces – Perfect 10


American Faces – No.10

A good day always involves a stop into a local coffee shop.    After our morning shoot, Scott Whitman and I stopped in to  Avant Garden in Anoka.  I could not have scripted a better scene to unfold: a young musician at the coffee bar playing his guitar.

I captured a quick photo with his back turned to me, then approached the friendly musician, Derek, and asked if I might take a few shots as he gave a casual impromptu performance for his coffee-drinking audience.

American Faces No. 10 is one of my favorite shots from this raw moment.
