Story behind the photograph
I have spotted this older man sitting on a Pitt Street Mall bench and looking absently forward. His funny beanie was instantly noticeable and a lot of people had a good look at him as they were passing him by. I got closer to the bench the man was sitting on, only to notice another element adding to his character – a pair of sandals, which looked as they were 5 sizes to big. The men made no notice of me approaching him and taking a photograph. He just kept looking forward.
