As promised a few weeks ago, I present to you: Michael Yarbrough, one of the funniest people I know.

It’s not often you meet a guy who simply embodies effortless cool, whose every move is unbelievably suave and silky. Michael is not one of those guys. He’s a huge nerd, in fact. But Michael embodies something just as valuable as effortless cool. He exudes a certain quirky charm and wise wit that will leave you in a permanent half-smile if you spend more than a minute around him.

When I look back at these visuals of Michael that I captured a few weeks ago, I sort of marvel. I hadn’t planned on shooting Yarbrough that day. I actually just ran into him while I was meeting up with another friend. Amazingly though, everything about Michael’s look just clicked. He just happened to be carrying a yellow mug that perfectly complemented the grass and his cool sweater and jeans. I suppose the stars just aligned. It was one of those moments where while you’re snapping away, you’re aware that everything you’re capturing is pure gold. It’s a cool thing to be cool with a guy whose color palette complements life.

When I complimented Yarbrough on looking particularly steezy that day, he bemoaned that I had caught him on a bad day. According to him, he just sort of rolled out of bed.

As proof for his claim of “not trying” that day, he pointed to his jeans and sneakers, proclaiming “I do gardening in these!”
“Sure,” I replied. “Whatever you say, Michael. Whatever you say.”
