Here we are at the end of the day on our way to Union Station. Luis wanted me to grab the wheel (he was driving) while he took a picture of the buildings. I told him no because I didn't want to run the car off the bridge.
I met this boy and ask him if I could take his picture. We had such a weird connection. but that's a story for another day!This man actually approached me, which was wonderful. He was asking me questions about my camera. I was happy to answer them. I ask him if I could photograph him, and he immediately made this face. I love his expression.We went to a skate park, and there were about 30 boys taking turns skating. I went up to one boy and ask him if I could take his picture. He was so high. and he barely responded. While I was photographing him, a group of teenage skaters were hooting and howling at him in Spanish. I was embarrassed for having embarrassed him. I decided to walk up to the group and try to embarrass them. They quieted up really fast. Luis, Pietro and I began talking to them. They spoke Spanish and some English. Apparently a lot of them were saying some very interesting things in Spanish, thank goodness I don't understand Spanish, or I'd have been very embarrassed. The image above was one of the guys in the group.
Here is another skater kid. He's probably 12 or so. He was kind of macho-man-ish. but I think I captured the child in him. He's not as old as he thinks he is. They never are.
