The Last Man At Lake Erie

I've been taking photographs for as long as I can recall. This piece pulls me back to high school, when all I had was my parents point-and-shoot.

On a trip to Erie to visit relatives, I spotted a man on the beach. Who was he? What was the flag for? Was anyone else with him?

These questions I only asked to myself.

As we were leaving, I looked around and noticed that the man was the only one left on the beach... so I snapped this shot.

He was the last man at Lake Erie that day.
