Guest Photo of the Day: Benoit P


, originally uploaded by Benoit.P.
Benoit takes a lot of portraits, and most of them look like they're of people he just happened to pass on the street. "Excuse me, sir, miss, would you mind if I took your picture?" I wonder what the story was with this one, a young woman underdressed in the rain. How did he get her to stop a minute longer so he could take her photo? Maybe the look on her face is resignation: I'm already soaked, what's another moment? The result is deeply compelling: a portrait of a passing soul.
