To get to Senator Edward Kennedy's wake at the Kennedy Memorial Library in August 2009, bus transportation was provided from the JFK/UMASS subway station. When I boarded the bus, I saw this gentleman with a green tie covered with shamrocks and asked if I could take his picture. He politely responded, "sure." I didn't expect the photo to come out with the rest of the wonderful group of people. I hope they don't mind that I painted them.
