mysterious gentleman

KT and I were grabbing a drink with a few friends in the Upper Haight when this dapper gentleman rode up and locked his bike just outside the window.

"Quick," she said. "Where's your camera?"

Now, I have 2 cameras. A newish SLR and a point-and-shoot I bought 5 years ago. My point-and-shoot, which I keep in my purse for emergencies, has a few quirks including that sometimes the lens doesn't open all the way... like it did that night. The good news? I think the resulting look lends a sort of mysterious curtain to the shot that goes well with his black garb and hat.

Yes, I was going to tell Lilia that I realized that was him that night (we were drinking at Alembic) after I ran into him in the Park.

Wow! Even he has to lock his bike up just like the rest of us.

When did you shoot this shot?
I love Gary. He's such a cool guy.
I use to be sponsored by him for dirt jumping in 2004 and 2005.
