i had an opportunity to work with the fabulous jackie guerra and to cover the obesityhelp west coast national event in irvine this past week-end. jackie is the spokewoman for obesityhelp.


i went to the "orange cirle" in old town orange, california, where chapman meets glassell that sunday.

i have always like this area since the first time i saw it when i went to cafe felix for cuban food.

it was an overcast day. i had a few hours to myself before meeting up with friends and head up to la. to meet with more friends for dinner so i thought i would explore the surroundings of this circle, looking for possible location for future photography projects.

Characterit was toward the end of my walk, that this man caught my attention. i was standing there, taking in the sights, when seemed out of no where, he pulled up and effortlessly set this large table down outside an antique furniture shop in the circle.

hmmm...now that's cool i thought. and just as suddenly as he appeared, he was gone. arghhhh...where did he go? while i lamented not having taken a photo of him, he reappeared. this time with boxes under his arm.

The Transporterah...i got it. he was making repeated trips transporting antique furnitures between several shops within the circle to show to prospective buyers.

on a couple of those trips, i was lucky enough to capture these memorable shots of him, and everytime i look at them, they prompt me to ask "what is character?"
