Flat top on fleek! Jose looked so cool chilling on the train it had to be documented! First I did the whole I'm-pretending-to-take-a-selfie-but-BOOM-I-just-took-your-picture-and-now-you're-on-my-snap story move, then remembered my manners and just asked. Jose was extremely charismatic. He's like me, an artist passionate about too many things: dance, illustration, music... he dreams about living in Japan someday soon as a manga artist.
One of my favorite things about people watching is creating a story about whomever I'm viewing. Before engaging with Jose I imagined him heading home after an intense training session at the boxing gym, his sports bag housing boxing gloves and workout clothes.
I was way off! But being surprised by people is seriously the best.
