Your Photo Of The Day: Beatnik Legend

This photo was added to our Flickr group by someone calling himself Viewminder. The Chicago-based street photographer has a project called "Faces of the Street." He has photographed more than 250 people in the city, including Joffre Stewart, pictured here.

Stewart, according to the photographer, is something of a local legend: beatnik, poet, anarchist and 1960 political candidate who makes a cameo in Allen Ginsberg's Howl.

Have you encountered any local legends where you live?
