The Hilton's inviting glow

As I was setting up this shot I noticed an official looking gentleman approach, so I quickly asked if it ok to take a shot before he had a chance to say something. He was a security guard and we struck up a nice conversation as I was waiting for my boss and head out for dinner. We talked about photography, the hotel and his job. He didn't have a big problem with me taking a few shots as long as no guests were in the shot. But I didn't push my luck and only took two shots using my new Pod beanbag to support the camera on a flat ledge. I asked him if I could take his photo to add to my stranger project, but as expected he was on duty so he wasn't comfortable with it - but said he'd easily say yes if we met on the street.
