Standing outside a coffee shop in Fort Greene, Brooklyn which I had been recommended to visit due to its interior resembling a science lab was a gentleman who I had failed to recognize instantly but I had easily identified the dog first. I walked back and asked him if he was who I thought he was and with a friendly smile that confirmed my suspicion, Theron and I engaged a brief chat and before we parted ways, I request to take a portrait and without any hesitation he agreed and thereafter swiftly lifted Maddie on to his shoulder for that signature pose that I had come to recognized on Instagram and most of the web.
Truly a humble and friendly guy who I had the pleasure to meet via a happy accident.
