I don't really know why but I kinda liked that. I think I would have had a hard time not following him with the camera. You know not keeping him in the center of the frame. I guess I felt some of that tension. Thanks for sharing.

You're right, Anthony, it was hard not following him with the camera.

I just recently recorded a peace "slow walk" in Pasadena. The goal was to walk mindfully and at the same pace as your Umbrella Man. I haven't posted it yet but I will.In really, it was hard for most people to walk that slow. It was a busy Saturday afternoon and you could not cross the street at that pace and hope to make it to the other side.I think it speaks volumes about just how fast we are living and not taking time to walk, be in the moment and just live. An 82 year old woman got a jaywalking ticket in the San Fernando Valley (Los Angeles) for not crossing the street fast enough. Take it slow and let it roll...

This guy must be pretty well known locally....no passersby seems to give him a second glance!Nice work, Sean!

Great choice to focus on the still window and street post. It emphasized the slow colorful walk, and the relative speeds of the passers by.

Dammit Stephan Move it!I used to work downtown, and more than once was Robert blocking the door. I have seen him progress from Trash bag and a box in front of Book Shop Santa Cruz to this.Got to love Santa Cruz.

That's a great shot... I like how you let him go out of frame at the end.
