Roll: Yard-Sailing in Niles

The "Perverted Old Man"

Last week my friend David and I went to a bunch of yard and house sales around the Niles area. One of the online ads for yard sales listed a "perverted old man" as being for sale. We couldn't resist; we found the sale, and the perverted old man (pictured above). The nice older gentleman didn't seem too perverted, and talked to us about how he grew up in Missouri by Six Flags Great America. He even let me take his picture, as long as I sent him "a check in the mail."

That same day, we ran into one of my friends and former boss, Barry, at an estate sale. He was buying a creepy Betty Boop mask. I used to photo assist (and still do, occasionally) for him on architectural shoots.

Here are some other shots I took that day, as well as the rest of the roll I finished later last week. I used my Leica M3 with a 50mm Summicron and Ilford FP4+ 125 Film.
