Captain Ed

Sometimes you meet a person and you know right away that they have "that kind of face". What is "that kind of face", you're wondering. Well, it's the kind of face that launched a thousand ships. Not like Joan of Arc... no, this kind of face is craggy and sunburned and you get the feeling this face might have actually been out on the dock tying up the boat or throwing the anchor in. When I met Captain Ed I asked if it was all right with him if I took his picture. I'm glad he said yes.
