Day 25 of the Portrait Project: Men on street

This Seattle layover was a rainy one.  I was planning on doing a million things for my day here, but what ended up transpiring was a long sleep-in and a couple hours at a coffee shop just across the street.  To be fair, it's one of the only SEA layovers where it's been rainy (surprisingly enough!), so I was quite happy to just allow myself to sit and observe the umbrellas go by, sipping on a beautifully crafted almond milk latte. 

The coffee shop girl & guy were good looking, unique, and perfect for my portrait of the day...and I wouldn't even have to leave the building!  She had on a tiara, which I later overheard was because it was her birthday.  I had it all planned in my head how I would approach her to ask to take a birthday photo... then all of the sudden, I found myself waiving good bye and walking out of her coffee shop.  Cat got my tongue.  No photo.  Disappointed, but sure that there would be plenty of great rainy umbrella shots out there, I pulled my hood over my head and walked up the street.  As I turned the corner, I saw these guys... Not wanting to let my shyness creep in again, I stopped and immediately asked to take their photo.  Eric gave me this most amazing smile, and I walked away giddy once again.
