81/365 Shoe Shine Man

My daughter and I did a city day. I love Seattle. Kirby's time home is coming to a close, so we went into the city to do some shopping. A girl has to have a new pair of spring wedges and few new t-shirts. I love the characters that call the city their home--this is the shoe shine man. He is always positive, friendly, working, and didn't mind having his picture taken!
Love this awesome candid. He looks like a joyful man. Fav! Sounds like a perfect day!
