His name is Edwin.  I met him by chance while waiting for Cable & Wireless (phone carrier in Panama) to open its doors.  We chatted for about half an hour.  I learned he was a retired college professor from the Universidad de Panama.  That very same day he was celebrating his 85th birthday.

I told him I was an amateur photographer and would like to take his picture.  He nodded and posed for the camera of my new Samsung Galaxy S III cellphone.  This is the short story of this photograph.

    1. Hi Barbara:

      There is no long story. We were outside Cable & Wireless office for about 1/2 hour waiting for the place to open. He had a cool personality and a certain touch of intellectuality. It was a serendipitous encounter.
