I took this photo of 'Rick from Minto' this summer during one of my trips to Fairbanks. In the evening while I was walking around taking some photos. First I hear this voice yell, "you're no tourist." I look around and here's Rick, making conversation and wanting some money, but not coming out and just asking. After a while I give him my street pan-handler test and ask him what he wants. If he doesn't beat around the bush and says, money, I ask him what for. If he tells me the truth I'll cough up a dollar or two. Otherwise, it's no sale and I walk away. So Rick says, "I'm dry man, I need a drink." Fair enough, he passed the test and told the truth.
