The Foot Of Dave (Day 298)
Today I was fortunate enough to have Dave, a local homeless man, eccentric, and celebrity, model for me; something I have been hoping for all year (our paths have crossed several times since my project started but either I didn’t have the time or the fortitude to ask before now).
Contrary to what one might initially conclude based on his appearance (which I think is absolutely awesome btw), Dave is intelligent, articulate, and very kind. From a previous conversation with him, I know that he is a Jefferson Republican, used to be a bartender, loves cigars, and is “off the grid” by choice. While I wouldn’t be at all comfortable with his lifestyle, I totally respect it. That said, I would so love to shadow him for a day.
