This young man was very nice when I stopped him and asked to take his picture. He even brushed off his pants to look more presentable. He is a chimney sweep who goes door-to-door asking residents if they would like to have their chimney's cleaned. Our chimney is typically cleaned once per year and takes only a few minutes.
He asked if American's had their chimney's cleaned and was curious as to why I wanted his picture. It looks like the 4th of July in your chimney if it isn't cleaned often enough (according to my husband's memory from growing up). :)
