It is one thing asking for a stranger's picture during the daylight. It is another thing to ask for it at night. I was out shooting long exposures in Lexington Center when I approached this man as he was walking by. He was very kind and courteous, and he took a few minutes out of his day to get the photo. I had never done a night portrait before. I was very thankful for his time. He talked about the importance of raising his sons as good men, because they were going to be "what reflected his own life goals beyond his life span." I never thought about children this way, and it was a very insightful thing of him to say, which got me thinking as well.
