This is a photo of one of my favorite cafe patrons, James Booth.  He's about the sweetest man you'll ever meet.  He lives at an assisted living place run by the Bethesda Project just around the corner from Cafe L'Aube.  He started coming in for a daily cup of coffee back in September when I first moved here and the cafe just first opened.  I asked him months ago if I could take photos of him sometime when it got warmer and he agreed at once and even boasted about it to a customer one day.  I want to do a whole series with him in which I follow him for a day, but yesterday I saw him hanging out in the park and knew there was no better way to break in my new camera than with a few shots of him. 7-11-09
