"The Kind of Person Leonard Chose to Become"

 
TITLE - "The Kind of Person Leonard Chose to Become"
WHERE - Vancouver, British Columbia (2016)


 
This is an amateur juggler practicing his moves at a busy public venue in downtown Vancouver.  He seemed to have chosen the location partly in order to attract an audience.  I asked permission to photograph his routine, and he assented, yet I could feel the apprehensive connection between him and me as he proceeded to juggle and I fixed my serious camera on him and clicked away. Perhaps he had envisioned a rapt audience here, but now I observed a twinge of stage fright and a moment of physical uncertainty. Leonard, the stage is yours.
