We talked story for a while, and when I asked him if I could photograph him he said it was ok. Just like that. No fuss, no questions. Wow, I thought, this guy must have confidence in his looks! The image I did that day right at the railing of his front porch turned out to be the most iconic of any I had made of the Nisei. Masaji was right, he looks good."
