Waiting at the Ordway Theatre


For years this wonderful man has been a familiar sight, waiting to open the door for concert and theatre goers at the Ordway Theatre in St.Paul. What a pleasure to see his smiling face and welcoming greeting.

  11. Love the coat. I imagine the hat would not do well in the wind, however.

  12. Isn't it wonderful to contemplate or reflect on all the awaitings we have performed over the years and to think which of them gave us the greatest pleasure ?

    I adore the doorman and the pleasure you have given us in this shot of him.
    I think that Nathalie and Olivier have summed him up and the way you have shown him to us.
