“Look at the birds!”
Infront of Shaw’s (Candy, Ice Cream, Gifts) on West Portal Avenue in West Portal
Look at those little toesies!
The woman in this photo was very reluctant to have me photograph her but agreed to as long as she could hide her face. Of course her child followed suite. It might have only been because of the flutter of pigeons behind him, but I still love how this little family mirror each other. I also love the way a large amount of these two figures is hidden, either by with a veil of shadow or hair.
A self portrait inspired by these strangers is coming soon!
