Brian is an interesting dude. I met him on the beach in Corpus Christi, TX. I had seen him earlier walking around, the beard swaying in the breeze. I thought to myself "If I get a chance I would like to take his picture". I got the chance a little while later.
My first thought when I saw him was "beach bum", which is obviously the sterotypical thing to think, and I don't like to automatically jump to conclusions. But, I was on the beach, and he has the look...
Brian is from somewhere, but nowhere in particular (I believe that is what he said - he wouldn't really answer that question). He is just hanging out and is trying to make his way down to South America. He feels that we are on the cusp of a New World Order, and that South America will be at the center of it. He hopes to make it there before it all happens. He also talked a lot about religion and how America is the new Israel, or something like that. I couldn't really follow his logic, if that's what you call it. Anyways, he was kind and (seemingly) gentle, and was gracious enough to pose for a few shots.
Good luck, Brian. I hope you are making progress on your journey.
Here are a few more shots of him:
