1970s-style Japanese salaryman: A portrait

    Nice shot. He looks pretty happy in his wild glasses. Did you talk to him to get his story?

    I really like this guy right off the bat. Seems he has an incredible attitude that shows through his expression. Great shot and amazing sunglasses! πŸ˜€

      Yeah, as soon as I saw his glasses I desperately wanted to take his photo. A real character — both in appearance and personality.
