1001 Black Men–#409

This is a portrait of a former neighbor. He and his wife lived in the apartment just around the corner. There’s a 4-unit, bungalow-style building there, and I only know that this guy lived in one of the departments because I used to see him standing in his doorway on hot afternoons. He and his wife no longer live there and, since they moved out, the landlord has completely refurbished the apartment and moved in new tenants. I do wonder what became of this man and his wife, though, and I kind of miss seeing him staring out of his doorway on warm summer afternoons.
