On the same day and almost five minutes later I was walking across the street towards seventh avenue when I spotted this man I noticed earlier. The soft wrinkles on his face seemed dominated by his thick rimmed glasses. The umbrella he was carrying tilted over his face and framed his face. I didn't take the picture because I was five feet away and didn't want to be overly aggressive in my shooting. I also didn't know about zone focusing then and would have had to manually focus wide open since I had 100 speed film. I now realize using 100 speed film on a dull rainy day isn't the smartest idea.
