    Just north of the town of Montrose Colorado is a very small town called Delta. It has that small town USA feel. Well, I saw this guy sitting on a bench and stopped on the opposite of road and sat there for almost an hour shooting him as other people walked by.

    All comments are welcome,

    Interesting contrast between the heavy coat and clothing your subject is wearing and the guy dressed for summer walking past.

    Thanks so much Alan. It was nice to be able to just sit and watch for a while.

    Thank you Anatoly. It was fun to do a little people watching. It was a great change of pace from being up in the mountains for over a week.
