Sometimes you find the most interesting characters strolling under the streets in grass skirts.
I snapped this photo after work as I was waiting for a train. We are all going about our business and I think I was the only person to look twice at the shirtless man walking through the Times Square station in a grass skirt, flip flops, a sun hat. He definitely put a smile on my face. This guy was just doing his thing, not asking for a handout or giving us a well practiced speech about his hard times, nope just on his way to a luau or some such summer fun. I wonder if shirts are optional for men on the train? hmm.
On a side note, take a look at the man on the right in the suit. I think he thought he was the subject of my photo. He was looking at me as though I was the topless one in a grass skirt when he saw me pull my camera out. Well, he probably wasn’t looking at me like I was topless but perhaps like I was invading his super special privacy by snapping a shot of a clear exhibitionist underground.
Anyway, enjoy the photo.
