Glen, dressed head to toe here in Ralph Lauren, eyed me suspiciously when I stopped him for his photograph and asked me if I had a card. As it turned out, I did. I had a stack of chintzy white business cards made a few months back on cheap, thin paper stock with my Urban Fieldnotes logo on one side, my URL, Facebook page, Twitter account, Pinterest board and email on the back. I hand them out to everyone I take pictures of. They couldn't look less professional, unless, perhaps, I'd printed them off on my own computer, but they do the trick. They provide all the info one would need to check out their own image on my blog — even if they fail to list the Tumblr and Instagram pages. But I'm never sure how they could convince anyone of my legitimacy as a street style photographer. Anyone could print these.
Nonetheless, I'm glad they were enough for Glen. I like his matching silk scarf and pocket square, his camel hair sportscoat, and sharp, tortoise shell frames. And I like the unexpected brightness of his pants. They are, indeed, very red.
