    And you did take his photo and will soon go and give him the print, and he will be happy! For you took a good photo of him. You happened to take another where you were crouching more and look less down from above, by any chance?

    nope that's the only photo. to be honest, i didn't think it was going to be much of a picture and i was on assignment to photograph something else so i hardly gave the man the time of day.

    ahh... if I had a nickel every time a grungy random wheelchair laden bird caller asked me to snap his picture... those were the good ole' days...

    I digress... interesting shot... great story behind it... not sure about cutting his elbow off... but the picture is very interesting
