A man and his parrot

In Gainesville you find people from all walks of life. Especially at farmers markets. This man with a long scraggly beard was walking around with his red macaw. He let anyone who asked hold the parrot. I love the way he stood in front of the vegetable stand, very poised, as if looking out into the sea. His parrot mimics him, looking very stoic. Normally people see a man and his dog, the two typical companions, and this makes people do a double take, which I like.
