True Story. So I arrive at Chicago, get off the train and immediately start making pictures. Two guys see me. They are big, strong, well dressed in street clothes looking like professional athletes. They say something. Can't understand. Keep walking making pictures of the station. One guy comes up close and says hey I'm heading up to Toronto. I want you to come with me to make some photographs. I'll give you a thousand dollars. I smile and say "what?" "I want you to come to Toronto and make pictures of my trip." I mumble something about having to go back to Waukegan. He and his buddy dog me out of the station. " $6000. I'll give you $6000. ". I say " how do you even know I'm a good photographer?" " I see your fancy camera, figure you must be good. ". I'm actually curious but all my questions are deflected. Finally they give up and walk away. Almost seemed too coincidental to be con. If it was they were pretty smooth. .
