Laguna Beach Cowboy

I went out with some girlfriends on Thursday night.  

I had too so much fun!  I'll tell you more about it next week.

Once I've fully recovered.

For right now, I just want to share a photo I took while out.  I'm proud of this photo, although it's far from perfect.

I was at an outdoor, rooftop, bar overlooking the ocean.  It was beautiful.  

I *might* have had one too many mojitos.

This gentleman was sitting near me.  He had the ocean and sky behind him.  The sun acted as the perfectly positioned hair light.  All I had with me was a pretty beat up point and shoot camera.

And yet, still I got this …

I don't know his name, but he gave me permission to take his photo.  (Thank you!)

I gave him my business card so he could see his photo here on Twenty Four At Heart.

I think it's an awesome photo, don't you?

    Great shot. I like the green of the beer bottle on the edge of the photo. He looks like he took a wrong turn coming from Australia and landed on a Calif. beach pier.

    You should do a series just of Orange County people! This shot wants me to hear his whole story. So many questions and only a photo to ponder. Really interesting, perfect, shot!

    Yesss, I can see the beautiful ocean behind him……lmao. Somehow, I don’t think any of us would be fixated on the water at this particular moment in time. Please tell me his voice was deep…..

    There is a topic for photo friday… where do you find the courage to ask random people if you can take their photo? I love this shot!

    It’s a great contrast to all the plastic OC women we always see. An actual “real looking” man in Orange County! Great shot and an interesting subject. Hehehe.

    Oh, dear. I do not find him remotely hot or yummy — and, honest, I love cowboys. But. not. him.
    Now, back to the photo… I like the way the light touches his hair and his lips. But it is just a little washed out and over exposed (too bad you only had the point and shoot). I love the reflections in the sunglasses — a better camera probably would have given us something much clearer. And that would have made the photograph.
    Moral: take your best kit with you, 24!

    Oh I LOVE taking candid photos of strangers! I try to get shots that don’t reveal their faces, so I can use them on my blog, without getting their permission. I’m afraid I seldom ASK anyone if I can photograph them. I just do it!

    Love it. Lots of character to entice us with in that photo. He’s the total opposite of my husband and that makes him … very interesting indeed.
