Default Faded dreams

Visit downtown Huntington Beach on a summer day and witness a parade of attention seekers. Bronzed Adonis surfers, silicon- and botox-enhanced bodies, elaborate and extensive tatoos, hucksters, panhandlers, musicians and pale-skinned, wide-eyed tourists. I spotted this fellow who appeared impervious to the circus, lost in his thoughts. From 30 feet away I took a couple of shots and wanted to get some feedback. Thank you.

I meant to post this in the Photo Critiques section. Comments and suggestions appreciated anyway.

The masked and blurred version is definitely better. Less distracting background.
He definitely shows character. It appears he may have had some medical issues as of late.

Great B&W shots, the masked background works well with the portrait
