Mr. Lucky

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

The guy selling lotto tickets: "You’ve got to ask yourself one question: Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?"

Me: "Uh, no, not today."

  3. The lotto ticket seller looks skeptical about having his picture taken. Lottery tickets are just a tax on the mathematically challenged. Buying a ticket doesn't increase your chances of winning by much at all. A fine portrait however.

  9. Jusqu'à présent, je n'ai jamais eu de chance à ces jeux, mais peut-être faudrait-il que je tente chez celui-ci!!!!

  12. He is definitely giving you the stink eye.
    Oh well, if you are in public, you are fair game...
    That is what I think anyway.
    Nice catch James.
