Often times when making portraits of people without asking them to formally pose you have to be ready, and hope that the subject you singled out will hold the pose that attracted you in the first place. Or, in other cases you've got to be patient and hope that eventually the subject will do something that you want to capture with your camera. Other times a man will simply decide to balance his cane (at the same angle as the stairway railing in the background no less!) on his head and you'll be lucky enough to be there to engage the shutter.
Sometimes you'll be there to take a photo when a gentleman decides to dangle his second pair of glasses from his ears.
While other times, most times, actually, you'll catch a person giving a look that could be best described as suspicious.
