Asking people if I can take their photos is sometimes easy - and often not. Our local beach is famous, but not for all the right reasons. It is home to a group known as the Bra Boys. Some of them were at the beach today - identifiable by their tattoos. I longed to be brave enough to ask if I could take some photos - but I was overwhelmed by timidity and decided to wait for another, braver, day.
These three men caught my attention instead.
My problem is that I do not simply want to photograph them.
I want to know their stories.
One day I will.
