The Behind the Scenes Man.......

It doesn't matter which event you may be attending, there are always those great folks who work behind the scenes, or off to one side, making sure that things are going properly. When we entered the Red Bull Open House grounds at the Windsor Airport this evening, I noticed this fellow standing off to one side of the canvas aircraft hangers. He was just standing there with hands folded in front of him, like I had seen a million times when I used to photograph weddings and family portraits. Afterward, as we were heading out, he was still standing there. So I went over to him, and asked him if I could take a photo. He looked somewhat surprised and said that I could. He said something to the effect that it was making him feel special. I told him that he was one of those unsung folks that kept things running smoothly, but never got many thanks for the effort. Then I told him that I would like to put the photo on my blog, and I am not sure if he will remember the name or not, but if he does, and sees himself here, he should know that whatever he does is worthwhile. Good luck fella, and thanks for putting up with me and my camera for a few moments......
