This was a man outside the Wal-mart who was resting on his cycle who allowed me to take pictures of him. A very nice man to talk to, he is a Reverend who travels around.

We should all send you just 1 or 2 shots of our FAVORITE CHARACTERS. You could add them to this Fellow = A#! CHARACTER then we could have a Coffee Table but of some VERY UNIQUE SOULS !!!

Well that surely is a different looking Reverend! Before I read it I enlarged and was looking at him and thought "that looks like a gun in his hands!" lol

I'm sure he relates to many who do not go to "regular churches!" God Bless him and you too Frank!

Frank, this portrait is FANTASTIC!
The idea of a travelling preacher goes waaaay back ~ but this gentleman has adapted brilliantly to the time he lives in. And no doubt many of those he shares The Word with pay more attention to him than to any minister in a church!

Love the combination of goggles and bib overalls, and the pov is excellent. You hit a homerun with this one, my friend. And I believe the bp judges will agree!
Hope you and Annie have a peaceful, enjoyable Sunday.

Boy, he looks like quite a character! Great job capturing his rather offbeat personality, Frank!
