1001 Black Men–#205

Saw these two brothers talking to each other in downtown Oakland. Actually, the guy on the left was doing all the talking, and the guy on the right was mostly listening. I don’t think they knew each other, and I think the guy on the left was asking for money. It was interesting just to see how the man on on the right gradually warmed up to the man who was speaking with him, as his expression turned from annoyed to engaged. In this drawing, he’s somewhere in the middle, just leaving annoyed and heading for a bit more intrigued. I don’t know if the man on the left, who really was dressed in a red shirt, every extracted any cash from the guy he was talking to, but he just may have made a bit of a friend.
